Blue and Pink

Welcome to Ten Gables cottage,
We are getting into the beautiful flowers of Florida's winter! That is when the weather is so nice, not too hot, but just right for all the flowers to bloom! Here I am showing
Blue Plumbago or some say Blue Leadwort. It is a shrub that is so very easy to grow here and will really get big if not trimmed. The branches are delicate and have small oval green leaves with flowers growing in clusters, a pale azure blue. I am very partial to this color! The pink flowers are Camellias. The leaves on this shrub are thick and glossy and the flowers bloom all winter. Lovely!
Today is gorgeous---about 72 degrees F, with few clouds, not much hope of rain although we could use some rain.

  1. Ah, your weather sounds so much nicer than ours -- today it has been cold (about 6 or 7 dergrees C), blowing a gale, and pouring with rain. Summer seems so far away at times like this! This is why it's so nice to interact with people in other countries, so we don't all get too depressed..
