A Spring Drive

A beautiful Spring day... temps in the mid 70s, sunshine bright and cheery. It seemed a good time to head out for a drive. We weren't disappointed one bit.

                                            The pink Southern Magnolias were blooming

                                      White blossoms in front of a white house is nice, too.
Beautiful statuary in a garden
And deer feeding in a green field.
A wonderful drive indeed. Thanks Shirley for inviting me.

    Love all of the flowering trees...


  3. Latane, it is 22 degrees here at 9:00! We are having another cold snap again! Glad you are in the 70's and enjoying the beautiful weather. Your photos are just marvelous. I love the white house with the white flowers. Thanks for taking us on your ride!


  4. Stunning Spring photos, Mom! Love that pink magnolia...a lamp-post too. Boy, we think alike! :-)

  5. I've never seen a pink magnolia tree. It's beautiful!!

  8. When I take a drive the sights I see are not as pretty as yours. That is a great shot of the deer.

  9. Love the deer and the beautiful Magnolias ~ Wonderful photography for OW ~ ^_^

  10. The trees there are simply beautiful.
    I've been living in Florida for about
    9 years now and that is one thing I
    miss from being up north.. the trees in Fall and spring..
    Thanks so much for your visit and
    the sweet comments.
    Happy April

  11. Those are some lovely photos of a beautiful spring. Love the deer in the park.


  12. Hi Latane, lovely photos of Spring, we are not so lucky over here. Lots of daffodills around so we know Spring is here even if it continues cold. I don't understand your temps as we are Celcius over here, - 2 some nights and a very balmy 9 or 10 some days!!
    God Bless

  13. Such beautiful photos of spring...
    The deer bring back a memory...sitting on the hillside at my sister's home in Harrisonburg...gazing at the gorgeous blue sky and all the forsythia and tulips...when a herd of deer ran past me...only a couple of arms' length away. It's one of my most treasured memories...


I hope you will visit often and leave a comment when you do. My blogging friends always put a smile on my face.
