It's been awhile since y'all have been by to visit the garden.
Boy do I have lots to show you & something important to tell you!
After much debate of whether to stay or start something new, I decided that after 13 years here at this wonderful little home, I decided to put it on the market. If it sells then I will be very happy to know someone else can enjoy it too! Now, I have to decide which plants come with me, lol.
I'm not sure how many more times I may get to blog about my little plot of paradise so let's have some fun while we can. Since the thundershowers are coming and going on a daily basis and
it remains uber hot and humid outside...
it's a great time to take a virtual walk through the garden!
|This is a view from the south walkway that links |
the front & back yards. You can see our new dog
Django under the huge Jamaican caper tree!
The picture on the left is dendrobium miyakei (I think)
Yes, the picture on the right is the same orchid flower! The top picture is a week
after the blooms opened up & the bottom picture is what it looks like a week after the top picture.
|Our front yard full of peanut flowers & |
the Ellen Bosanquet crinum lilies in bloom
The above pictures show my spindle palm in it's place of eight years.
It grew so fast along with the adjacent trees that it had to be relocated.
Our contractor friend found a good home for this beauty on one of his projects.

Thank you so much for coming by & walking through the garden with me!
Keep cool, stay hydrated, wear sunblock and enjoy some summer fun!
Happy Gardening & Best Wishes,
