Three scenes from Sholom Park and the Kreativ Blogger Award

We have posted a few photos of Sholom Park previously. Sholom Park, just west of downtown Ocala, is a beautiful meditational park, designed and donated by a local developer. Much more information about this facility is available here.





Kreativ Blogger Award

The color on that first one is stunning! The flowers here are starting to fade and the leaves are falling. Your pictures make me think of perpetual summer.

I took the link and checked out their website. That looks like a wonderful park. Nicely landscaped and maintained.
Congratulations to you both on the award. It is well deserved.

Congrats! Those little yellow and orange flowers (called oeillets d'Inde in French i.e. carnations of India) are amongst my favourite, even though they don't smell very nice. Gorgeous photo, lighting up my drab Sunday (yucky sky!)

The colors here are fantastic. Very bold and beautiful. We have not even hit November yet and already I long for these types of scenes.

The gated entrance is very inviting. I imagine you can sit and just relax and take in the beautiful landscaping. (And sneak a long cigar to clear the mind and soul.)

Frank said...

Didn't mean to forget to offer my CONGRATULATIONS on another well-earned award. You guys deserve each one.

Tricia said...

Very beautiful place you have there!

And WoW! Nefertiti! Congratulations

Jacob said...

@ Frank - I'm not sure about the cigar, my friend...but I have smoked my pipe there without a problem...

Jacob said...

Congrats on your blogger award! Couldn't have happened to a sillier guy! Love the marigold photo! Is Sunday a "blog holiday" for you or are you busy pulling weeds again by your pool?
