What I would miss about Ocala...



The rolling hills and mighty oak trees


The rivers and forests


The hundreds of beautiful horse farms


The golf courses


The dear hearts and gentle people


The theme for February 1 has to do with what you would miss about the city in which you live if you had to move away.

Wonderful captures of the places that you love and they're so beautiful!! Thank you for sharing, Lowell!! You do indeed live in such a lovely area!! I'm a big horse lover, so I would love having all those lovely horse farms near by!! How about that for "LOVE" for the day!!

Miss????
How about a math course. ONE thing you'd miss. Maybe that 16th fairway?

A nice selection, Lowell. I particularly love those oak trees and fenced horse farms.

You make it look bucolic!

Terrific selections, Lowell, particularly the horse farms!

You captured the theme very well in your photos Lowell. Ocala is a beautiful area, part of the "other" Florida that most people don't think of when it comes to our state. I love that last shot. It would seem we both like to shop at Publix!

I love that pic of the horse farm, Lowell! I always knew we were getting close to our destination when we saw them on our journey south!
It really is the people that make places special, isn't it.

It appears that all of us bloggers have a lot to be thankful for in our various cities. I love all the green you get to see every day!

Lots to like about Ocala!

It's good to love where we are and not always be longing for somewhere else. I guess that's what "bloom where your're planted" means.

Beautifully put, Lowell.
