Tuesday Travelogue-May 30th

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 130th week! (Falling on May 30th, kinda cool...)

Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:


 to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

  and hopefully much more!

 One of Mom Nature's most creative annual moments are the flowers that pop up in May. I did some digging and many ActiveRain bloggers focused on May Flowers. 

This is the result of "March Monsoons" in Summerfield FL, a pictorial done by Mary-kay Canfield and Chris Canfield.

Janet Cox talks about bulbs and offers some ideas on varietals to plant in her area (and others!) in Lincolnton, NC.

Kathy Streib offers up another moment of reflection on Mother Nature's wonders. I loved this quote:

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul.
Luther Burbank

Flowers and quotes from Delray Beach FL





You never know WHO you will encounter in a field of yellow flowers on a country road! Patricia Kennedy made me smile and enjoy this moment in Amish country. 

Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels.

Belinda Spillman this kind of stuff always makes me happy, so I wanted to share it today! Thanks for stopping by.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD yes, bounty is RIGHT! Finally got my groove on regarding gardening. Larry and I even did a small "repurposing" project, by taking a huge plank that I pulled up from another garden area, cut some "shelves" out of old barnwood fencing we've had and then made a standing column of shelves for my outdoor plants! I need to get a photo. It sits right next to the garden area where Rocky is laid to rest. I planted flowers there and I feel very happy to be honoring him. Still showed properties and am writing up two offers today! How 'bout you two? Any downtime??

Some gorgeous spring photos. I have planted over 150 plants. The squirrels are loving eating the geraniums in the ground. I vow they will not get the last ones. It's a battle.

Beth Atalay Mom "N" always does it for me, too! I was gloriously happy this weekend--first full sunny Memorial Day weekend in 30 years in Oregon! Planted lots and lots, created a plant stand, sat on our outdoor furniture that we just moved from our vacant lot after it sat inside for a year and a half! Talk about HAPPY!

Now Dick Greenberg that DOES surprise me! I thought I pulled a few out that no one had seen. One person hadn't had any comments...I always love to be the first to congratulate them on a fine post.

Sharon Lee I did have those thoughts your direction this weekend when I was toiling away, wondering how the heck you kept up with all of it. I bet it's gone to hell in a handbasket now that the brother(s) are involved. Happy to deliver flowers to your door so-to-speak!

Debbie Reynolds those chippers of mine love my birdseed but so far not the geraniums. They are everywhere! No squirrels in this neck-of-the-woods. Hang in there, girl!!
