Went to look at houses

this morning and what did I take pictures of?  Not one of the six houses I set out to see.  What I took a picture of was a flowering "tree" in the back yard  of the first house on the realtor's list.  Five house I got to walk through and imaging myself living and working within the walls and under the roof.  The sixth one was occupied and I hate looking at a house with someone else's possession still there.  So of  the six, I narrowed my house choices down to three.  All three had great natural lighting and in  all three I could see myself living and creating. 
Sorry, Kathy A, none of them had a pool in the back yard but the one at the top of my list shares a fence with the community pool, so if I get that one, you will have a very short walk to get wet when you come to visit.  I think these are trumpet flowers. What ever their botanical name is they were just largely gorgeous and yellow, one of my favorite colors.
The flowers did not sway me, but the first house on our to see list had two trees with these blooms growing in the back  yard., but after seeing three more houses this house with the big blooms was in a tie for first and moved down to second place after the next house.  Each house was in a different Orlando bedroom community, Maitland, Winter Springs and Lake Mary.
   Will keep you abreast of my house hunt progress.

Good luck in finding the perfect house, Juanita. I'm anxious for your search to be over so the dyeing and quilting can begin again!
