While I was taking some solitary time this afternoon out on the deck, it occurred to me how much I’ve been missing the color green. As I sat there, surrounded by green trees, green grass and green bushes I realized how little of that color we have near us in Florida. We have beautiful blue water, wonderful cinnamon-colored sand, and the occasional fluff of green at the top of a palm tree. We have grass, but in the heat of the summer it struggles to remain its intended shade.
On the deck today I felt as though I was swaddled in a lush, dark, deep, well-nourished, as-God-intended-that-color-to-look cocoon of . . . . green-ness.
Wishing you were all here.
Smiling from ear to ear. 🙂 I know that feeling.
So happy for you!
Not silly at all and wish I was there too 😃
Wish I was there with you! I love that corner!
I know what you mean about the color. In November here in Wisconsin everything turns brown and I can’t wait for that first snowfall to “brighten” things up!
I love the green of Spring and Summer, except maybe on these 90 + degree and very humid days we’ve been having. For Pete’s this Michigan, not Florida. It looks so cool and peaceful on the Island.
It hit 80 today, but there was a nice breeze. I think we’re supposed to have another 80’s day, then back to the 70’s for highs.
Oh how I wish I were there! Nothing compares to Mackinac Island.
My wife and I just returned from the Island last week. Miss it already. Is the condo complex you bought into those near Mission Point?
Unfortunately, we’re only leasing, Brad!
Hi Bree. You don’t know me but I have been following you for a couple of years now. I saw your last post card number three, and your picture from your balcony, and I knew exactly where you were. My family and I arrived today, in the heat, and we are now across the street from your balcony playing golf. Love your posts. Enjoy your time here. This is my favorite place too. By the way my name is Elaine.
