It is sunny and beautiful in Florida, plenty hot, but not TOO hot! The grass is very green and pretty because we have had sufficient rain, as you can see in these photos. There are five wild turkeys in the edge of the woods, but I don't think you can see them, even if you enlarge the photo. I was too far away and the mother turkey kept stretching her head up when I moved and making her four little ones (about half grown) go into more dense foliage.
The brown in the palm tree is not anything bad. Palms fronds just naturally dry up and fall off as new growth comes out of the top.
My Shamrock from St. Pat's day kind of died down in April and May, but is now back up and blooming again. Reminds me of Ireland!
Does anyone out there know what kind of plant this is? I got it at church at a plant exchange. It has itsy little lacy things on the leaves and I am wondering if they might fall off and start other plants. I have it in a pot and don't think I will put it in the garden, as it may be invasive. I need to find it's name and look it up.
The Caladiums are still pretty even though it is hot. Mine are planted in a fairly shady spot and have done well.
But, alas! Here is my one tomato plant and has grown gangly and has only one little tomato. See it at the bottom of the picture? It was planted late, not in full sun, as I knew it would just die, so it gets half day of shade. It is a salad tomato, but a harvest of ONE is hardly enough for even a salad!! No blooms are in site, so I guess this it IT.
On a colorful note, here are some gorgeous crape myrtle blooms. I have pink and lavender ones....these are the lavender. Actually they look more mauve. Anyway, they are pretty. Crape Myrtle trees are pretty in summer, but in winter they are dreadful! Even in Florida, they have not a bit of foliage in winter...just old dried twigs. Then all at once, Wow! So I guess they are worth it.
