Sunny Sunday ... at last!

This post is to thank you for all your lovely comments and good wishes for my travels. And yes, today the sun is trying to shine, so I thought I'd share some of the sights from my morning walk today. The birds here are wonderful - pelicans (above) everywhere!

The flowers are beautiful too and such a delight after all the snow in England.

I can't believe how many types of hibiscus there are ... everywhere I look!

Beautiful grey herons too!

And the jewel in the crown here ... the roseate spoonbill.

  1. Oh, blissfully lovely! Isn't it wonderful what a little sunlight can do for our spirits...so glad the sun remembered that Florida is the sunshine state and that ol Sol had better step up and deal!

  5. It looks like summer. The roseate spoonbill photo is stunning, but the one above it of the gray heron standing in a reflected pool of pink is other worldly.

  8. Charlotte, your eye for beauty & skills with photography shine through in every post you share. It would be magical to see the roseate spoonbill on my deck...guess I'll just dream on;-) The gray heron on the sand, with the pink lighting on the sand is a spectacular shot! Glad you're enjoying Florida!
