Nature Pictures

These pictures were taken at Erna Nixon Park in Central Brevard Florida.




Can you see the heart?





I call this a gnome door. :)

    1. They do. :) I forgot what the pink stuff on them is called but the darker it is the better the air quality is.

    1. I have no idea. Some kind of pest, but I think the leaves look so pretty. Like lace.

    1. It is a very relaxing place. And it's easy to connect with nature there.

  7. I love taking pictures of Nature. I live right near a pond, and like to go for walks around it, or just sit by the pond reading and doing artwork.. Unfortunately, some of the most interesting things happen on Saturday, when I can't use a camera. I missed a photograph of a heron or some other kind of long-legged, fish-stalking bird one Saturday.

    I particularly like the photographs of your trees.

      Thanks!

  11. Turn right at the heart and meander under cover of lace-strewn leaves, near a puddle of soft green moss a miniature portal to magic awaits where troubles are left at the X. What a lovely morning walk! Thanks for the visuals :-)

  17. The gnome door and the mossy bottom tree were my favorites. The leaves with the holes make me sad. Arent those done by bugs? I think its bad for the trees. Great pictures !

    1. Yes, the holes in the leaves are done by bugs, but I thought it looked beautiful. Like lace.

  18. What's with those leaves. Looks like some critter got to them.

  19. Love those pictures. I love the gnome door. I would have to travel to the mountains in order to see that much green here. Living in the desert sucks at times. lol

    1. Gosh, I wouldn't be able to live in the desert.

  20. I love the gnome door. And the plant that is being eaten alive.
    I don't know why, but there is also something about the first photo that makes me blush.

  27. I love your gnome door.

    The leaves with the holes suggest an exciting pre-story.

  30. Awesome! It's so hot outside here...it's tough to be outside for long. It doesn't look like it was hot with these pictures, though. It looks like you could just find a tree, sit down beneath it, and write for hours!

    1. Tell me about it! I barely go outside these days. It was a bit humid when I took those pictures but I plan to go back in the fall to really enjoy the scenery with cooler weather.

  32. I love you chose to share the less than perfect side of nature. Even a bug can contribute to a wonderful design. Is the area near your home? Tree photos are one of my faves, I mean...just look at how beautiful they are. I love them all.

    1. Thank you! You're the first to say that those leaves had a wonderful design. I loved them and thought they looked so artistic. This park is a bit of a drive, but not too far. So it's perfect for a little escape. :)
