This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Flood® Wood Care. All opinions are 100% mine.
I love DIY project and since we moved to our new home a year ago, I already accomplished from creating a patio on our backyard, did the landscaping myself, staining our wood floors as well as staining the concrete floors on our front porch. My next projects are now focus on the concrete floors in the garage and the wood fence on our backyard. How about you? Are you planning for a DIY project as of this time?
With the help of Staining Made Simple, doing DIY projects are easy, fun and self-fulfilling plus, it does not break the bank! Hiring a contractor would be so expensive. If I can tackle a simple DIY project, there is no reason that you can't. Now, check out the photo that I saw from Pinterest below. What a big difference right? I would love to have this great transformation of my fence too.

We just passed by the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. I was hoping to see the big gator sunbathing in the right side of the ditch or small canal. I saw a big gator for the first time but, that was a week ago and I did not bring my camera. I took a picture using my blackberry but, the zoom is limited so; I did not get a good shot. The gator is not there anymore.
We took the route along Space Commerce Way which is also known as Government Road. One time, we saw tourists stopping by to take pictures of wild small gators on the small canal. Big ones? We saw one time and that was it. But, sure they are just here around and they are protected. The photo above is the Indian River Lagoon and there's a boat , they are fishing in there.
When you visit the Kennedy Space Center, you will pass NASA Parkway for sure and see the beautiful view along this area. This is really nice at sunset. You will get a full view and it is gorgeous at sunset with reflections on the waters of Indian River Lagoon.
I really don't know the name of this tiny island. If you look closely, you will see a boat and there were people swimming in that area. I don't know if it is safe though. Gators can come up to this area you know. So far, I don't hear any incident yet.
I took a zoom and now, see the boat?
Here's another boat on the other side of the river.
From the look, I think this is a small fishing boat. It looks like the fishing boat in Biloxi, Mississippi ^_^ . Anyway, from the bridge, the Parkway passes the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex but, the general public is not permitted beyond the area. The NASA security gate permits access to authorized tour buses only. If you wanna visit Kennedy Space Center then, you can go further on this road via the Kennedy Space Center tour bus.

Dreams do come true and look what he accomplished in life Walt Disney became the animator, film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, and international icon. Everyone knows the name Disney and the fun of Disneyland and Disney World. Thanks to him for his imagination ... and that is the reason why, this tree is important. It all started here.
Walt Disney's vision and legacy will go on for generations to come as the son of the dreaming tree slowly growing. At 9 years old, the son of the dreaming tree hopefully will become an icon that will inspire new dreamers and will follow the footsteps of Walt Disney.

It actually looks like the photo above. Now, the five-lined skinks are diurnal which means, they are active during the day. They like to soak up heat from the sun during the day. No wonder why I saw them under the dirt. You should remember, our soil here is so sandy. They eat mostly insects such as crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, caterpillars, spiders, earthworms, snails, slugs, and isopods. They love to climb dead trees where there are a lot of insects. Their predators include Raccoons, snakes, and hawks.
For this lizard that I have here, they love to hang out on the backyard.
They are big too and usually, they stay on the fence most of the time. Next time, I will take photos of the different lizards on my backyard. I just find it interesting to know what kind of lizards they are. Thanks for stopping by today. I will see you next time.
If you are new to gardening, here are few basic tips that you should remember:

This product is called Quick Shine Floor Finish. It gives floor protection and shine. I bought it at Wal-Mart for less than $8 and it does works miracle on our floor. It's been a year this month and our floor looks like new. This product restores the floor with a deep and protective glow. Application is fast and very environmentally friendly. This product gives instant shine in fact, for less than a day, I already saw the difference. Quick shine is formulated for gloss and durability. A product which is Made in the USA and we should patronized our own.

As for the rest of these beautiful flowers below, I have no idea what their names are.
Check out the photo below, I even caught a bee trying to sipped a nectar out of it ... just my wild guess :-) or helping for pollination (wink).
This plant is really pretty, check out the flowers, I might cultivate it because the leaves are pretty.
Now, this for sure is my least favorite occupant in my garden, the flowers withered easily.
This is the only variety in the entire yard, looks like a tiny sunflower.
That's all for now friends. I will be posting some of my favorite flowers in my garden next time. I have few in blooms. Thanks for stopping by. Oh, if you know the names of the above plants/weeds/flowers, feel free to share it with us. Thanks and hope to see you again.
