Kinda Sad…

Naples Botanical Garden – Asian Garden

I’m kinda sad because we normally would be on the road today, probably getting close to our winter home in Florida. This is such a nice time to be there because most visitors haven’t arrived and the weather is delightful. I also miss my fell snow-bird friends although my neighbor, a year around resident, said no one is coming down yet. I sent an e-mail to our Canadian neighbors today because it is their thanksgivings. They won’t be going down until the travel ban is lifted and I don’t see that happening any time soon.

I also am eager to get back to the botanical garden to photograph the lush vegetation and exotic flowers. The benefit of not going this year is that we get to experience the brilliance of the northern fall transition from summer to winter. For some reason the trees are turning sooner this year than in the past 10 years. We are near peek here in southern Michigan.

I’m hoping that the sunny days happen this week when I don’t have appointments so I can get out for some fall color drives down back roads at my dot on the map.

This post was kinda inspired by Becky’s “kind” squares.

  1. I’m going to miss all those trips to the Naples Botanical Gardens, Pat. It’s become one of my favorite places, even though I’ve never been there. But now I will enjoy seeing autumn in Michigan.


    • LOL – I bet you will see some new photos from there as I pull from 10 years of files. I don’t take many photos outdoors during the winter in Michigan. I’m getting a bit too old for time out in the cold.

  2. I’m sorry to hear you are not able to travel south. We are bound to Sligo, too. Ireland is back into lockdown, the new cases are through the roof and we don’t even know what’s going to happen next. Thanks for sharing and enjoy autum colours. Aiva 😊


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
