The weather is a tad cooler,here in Florida.
But the humidity has dropped.And for that we Florida gardeners rejoice.We can get out into the garden without sweating our asses pants off.
Having grown up in Western New York,and then living in New England for four years before relocating to Florida for the past 40 years,I must admit this is the time of year I miss Fall in the northeast.
Here in Florida,our tank tops have been replaced with t-shirts,and we are still gardening in shorts and flip-flops.
But for all you Northern gardeners who are having fun filling up Facebook and Pinterest with all your photos of your foliage,we in Florida have Fall foliage,too!
It’s just different.
Duranta Gold Mound Duranta repens
Some trim this into a hedge form,but I prefer to let it grow naturally.I just like like it that way.
To be honest,I’m not sure what the purple plant is(I got the original cutting from Meems at Hoe and Shovel),but it is prolific,and roots quite easily.More Duranta Gold Mound,croton and a bit of the Jatropha in the background.
Marigolds,in the veggie garden,blooming amongst tomatoes and Cilantro….
……Happy Fall ……
