I love spending time in nature. Mordecai Historic Park near downtown Raleigh is a gem. Peace and tranquility among the old Oak trees, squirrels, flowers, and birds. I have been fortunate to see many bluebirds this year at this scenic wonderland. Check out my article Bluebirds in the City for the North Carolina Bluebird Society.
Friday Greetings! This day is extra special, being the first weekend of Spring. Isn’t this daffodil such a symbol of fun, sun, and warmer times on the horizon. Photo taken yesterday on a stroll around Mordecai Historic Park in downtown Raleigh, NC. That is such a place of peace and tranquility. Hope you have a wonderul March 22.
Hello, Friends. Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday/St. Patrick’s Day. Went outside this morning to start of a beautiful North Carolina day. Snapped a few photos of my “Hoosier Flowering Almond” that is in early stages of bloom. This plant means so much to me. I love flowers, and this one is especially gorgeous. And, a sign of spring and sentimental value.
It is pink, which is my favorite color (the green leaves can be the symbol of St. Paddy’s Day color for today). It was transplanted from family land in Houston, IN to Knightdale, NC in 1996. Always long for home, but this floral reminder of Indiana helps. More about my hometown can be found at houstonindiana.com.
