Floral beauty! What's the stadium used for? Baseball? Football? Horse racing? Not golf, though.

Jacob said...

Soccer, right? Aka, football.

Okay, the main gate at Stone Creek is where you enter the actual community...only those people who live in Stone Creek are allowed through. We have a little thingy on our car that is read by a little thingy on pole so when we pull up the barrier rises and we can drive through. Visitors invited by residents can be admitted by the guard, as can various business folks contracted by homeowners.

A couple can buy a house in Stone Creek if one of them is 55 years of age or over. Children over 18 can live with their parents.

It's a nice situation. Keeps out the riff-raff. The golf course and the restaurant are open to the public.

Looking at the first image I can only say: vive le printemps! :-)

How lovely to have the flowers to look at when there's a lull in the game...as if there's ever a lull in the game.

Colorful entrance!

This is the nicest setting I have ever seen for a stadium. You probably know that the name sounds like some kind of swearing in Italian!

It is pretty. I've always been fond of stadiums with red dirt, and of course I love those flowers!

Malyss said...

C'est rare de voir un stade aussi bucolique! j'espère que ça ne distrait pas les footballeurs?..Ü

Loree said...

What beautiful flowers.

Kaori said...

What a nice stadium! Tulips are one of my favorites, so pretty!

Re your question on Stone Creek - in the unlikely event such a thing should happen at age 55 1/2, you'd probably have to pack up and move. Us old folks don't wanna deal with no kids! They're noisy and always in the way and have runny noses!

Love all the different colours, as if the flowers are holding a festival for all of us to enjoy.

Before I played golf, I played tennis (though not very well). I was never any good on clay (or at all really), but I like the way clay courts look.

And I love the arrangement of flowers. Lovely!

Il faut sauter entre les fleurs?...

Catherine said...

Des arbres fleuris en harmonie avec le revêtement du stade !

Louis la Vache said...

The flowers make a pleasant greeting for everyone seeing them and the stadium.

*** The weather here since the weekend is not so good, in fact "it's cold again"!!! :(
Also not so good for me, c'est la rhume!

Ah. Reminds me of what used to be my garden. Better take care of that rather soon.

Very good angle for that first shot.

Beautiful flowers! Spring is beautiful everywhere.
