October Flowers

It may be October but there are still so many flowers in bloom! On a walk yesterday I saw these colorful flowers. The bright sunshine made them sparkle.

The leaves haven’t started to change colors yet so I’ll enjoy these flowers for now. I hope they last a long time…

Lake Michigan in September

A visit to Lake Michigan on a sunny and windy afternoon was perfect for late September. Lots of people walked on the beach and the pier to the lighthouse. The spray from the waves got people (including me) a little wet!

This seagull disregards the sign.

It was a lovely day to spend at the beach while it is still warm…

Summer Flowers

There have been so many colorful flowers this summer I thought I’d share these pictures. Some are from my garden and others are from walks I’ve taken. It’s also been a wonderful year for hydrangeas – I’ve seen them with pink, blue and white blossoms. Flowers are part of what makes summer so memorable…

Lake Scenes

I visited Lake Michigan several times during the past year and It changed significantly from season to season. Here are some pictures showing the contrasts.

The winter featured snow and ice on the water.

The summer scenes are much more inviting if you want to swim! Here it’s early in the day and people haven’t arrived yet…

And here’s a picture from last November.

The lake is wonderful to visit any season of the year!

Walking in Williamsburg

It’s a lovely day for a walk in Colonial Williamsburg to see flowers, buildings, and shops that are currently open. The tree-lined sidewalks provide enough shade to stay cool.

Flowers are in bloom everywhere!

It’s interesting to look at the shop displays.

This is a charming place to walk any time of the year!

A Walk in May

I thought the beginning of May was a perfect time to visit a park that has flowers, benches and even a fountain. Here’s the view from the entrance.

I walked to the fountain first.

If I followed these paths there were benches, fresh greenery and flowers.

Here’s a closeup of some azaleas.

It was a perfect day for a walk and a look at the colorful flowers. Spring has arrived!

This is for Jo’s Monday Walk.
