~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There's a beautiful blue housing development not too far from me.
Here's the entrance. It's called Heritage Harbor. Notice the large blue sign across the lake.






Plumbago is planted; the bloom is a beautiful pale blue.




Here's the front of the entrance gatehouse. Notice all the blue trim as well as the blue directional sign.





All informational signs are blue. Notice the blue trim on the golf course restroom building in the background.




Even all of the mailboxes are blue.







As we leave, we see this final informational blue sign.




This is the back of the gatehouse. It's trimmed in beautiful blue.




Happy Blue Monday!

Actually I wish we had pink grasshoppers here. I think they're cute Sally.
Is your house going to be like that one or similar?

Seeing your pictures reminds me of visiting my son in the Naples/Fort Myers area. Our upcoming trip includes visiting our son and family in Fort Myers. Can't wait!!

I don't think I've ever seen an entire community of blue mailboxes before - nice find!

Elizabeth said...

I notice that lots of signs are in blue. I guess because red and yellow are taken by the gov't for signs. Have a great week, Sally!

hip chick said...

I'm no sure I would like all those signs telling me what to do in my own neighborhood. But it does look very pretty.

CailinMarie said...

That is a pretty neighborhood. It seems a lot of neighborhoods use blue for signs. It does look nice!
Happy Blue Monday!

This is off topic, but I wanted to take a second to thank you for your kind comment on my home school post. I appreciate you advice too! It makes sense what you said...

What a beautiful place. That was a really great idea they had for the blue mailboxes. You do not see those everywhere. As always, you come up with such great post.

Gayle said...

All the matching trim is one of the things that make the neighborhood so perfect-looking. Definitely a place for people who like things just so. Thanks for sharing.
