Stop and Smell the Flowers

Spring is here and the flowers are blooming!  I rode through a nice little park here in Orlando last week and had to stop by their rose garden to stop to smell the flowers.  So pretty, don't you think?

Here are some pictures I took a couple of years ago at Leu Gardens.

And if you really really like flowers....here are some more from Longboat Key...with sunsets added.

Apparently I didn't notice the date was on...

Looking at these pictures made me realize how past due I am for a visit to this piece of Heaven on Earth..

Homemade ~ Terrarium

I have found a fun new hobby....terrariums!  I did alittle research on how to layer your glass container and picked up some supplies ~ pebbles, rocks, charcoal, different types of moss, decorative items, sticks, bark, potting soil, and of course the plants.  I bought Succulents because of the slow growth and little maintenance required.  I made one for my Mom and for my Brother & Sister-in-Law.  Early Easter gifts...posted a few pictures.  Thanks for looking!

This is my Mom's
