I love my Sunday rut which consists of taking a walk around the Gateway property with my digital camera. I’ve written about the many different trees we have but the flowers, bushes and plants way out number them. From the white bird of Paradise that is 3 stories tall to pink roses and all colors of Hibiscus the variety of blooms is never ending and it takes place all over the year. There is never NOT something in bloom and Mother Nature does a great timing job.

I have 24 plants IN my apartment and there are 16 right outside my door on the third floor walkway. From that walkway I can see from downtown Fort Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale beach as we are right in the middle. Surrounded by the yachts in Karen Bay and the Goodyear blimp flying overhead in the blue skies with white tufts of clouds the sight of all the greenery from avocado and palm trees to the purple blooms of the Queen crepe myrtle trees cascading down the sides add up to a living Eden.

Sometimes South Florida is referred to as G-d’s waiting room--if it is there isn’t a better place to wait or more things to do while you are waiting, like taking a walk on a Sunday afternoon with 79 degree temperature and a cool breeze from the ocean floating across all that Mother Nature has provided.

    Your descriptive writing made me feel as if I was there walking with you!
    Thank you for the blog & the pictures- you brightened my dull Sunday.
    You are lucky! It's still winter here in the Valley (Sacramento, CA).
    My sis & I are longing for Spring & the renewal of Mother Nature's bounty.
    I can't wait to start an herb garden & plant more bulbs & rose bushes for the riot of color I love in the Summer!
    Thanks again!
