Outside of no rain –thought this was rainy season?– for over a week,
and temps in the 90’s,
and humidity to match.
Meaning if you have gardening to do
….and who doesn’t at this time of year?…
you had better have your butt outside,
working in the garden by 7:30AM.
And be done by 11AM,
and soaking that butt in the pool for the rest of the afternoon.
After 4:30,or so,it just might be cool enough to take the camera out and see what’s going on…..
The plumerias are blooming like crazy….
The red never ceases to amaze me.
The first year the pink and yellow has bloomed!I’m in love with this one!
The yellow carries on.The original cutting for this came from my dad’s garden in St.Petersburg,before he passed.
The white has gotten so big(over 10’ tall),I can’t take a good photo of the blooms!
Both wild coffees are blooming….
Jamaican Wild Coffee psychotria undata,Zone 9-12
Florida native Wild Coffee psychotria nervosa,Zone 10-11
-pushing the limits on this one,but so far,after 3 years,it’s still doing great!
Zebra Long Wing on the Jatropha-sometimes they will pose!
Blackberry Lilies are blooming already,this year.Kind of early.Mine are the freckle-less ones.
Self seeded Blanket Flower.
Cats on the parsley.I always plant extra just for this reason.
How are you doing in this Florida heat?
…or just floating in the pool?
I vote for floating in the pool…..
