baby,you and me…..”
ooops-kinda got carried away…….sorry,Jackson 5
Let’s get started shall we?
or Sword Lily(a member of the gladiolus family)
On a lark,I bought these bulbs at Home Depot,back in January,when we were in the midst of the freezing weather.I planted them in pots,as we have an armadillo problem(meaning if I plant a bulb,they can smell it a mile away,and chow down!). Once they had sprouted,I,carefully transplanted them into the garden.Hardy to Zone 6,they should be planted in clusters.They are supposed to bloom throughout the hot summers of Florida(we shall see….).So far,they seem to like alot of sun,and are relatively drought tolerant.They grow 1-3 feet tall and have a spread of 1-3 feet.Since they have bloomed I wish I had planted all of them.According to the literature,they are supposed to be fragrant,but so far I haven’t noticed a fragrance(it could be my allergies….).But they are stunning growing up through the Giant Liriope.A beautiful contrast.I’m glad that I planted them amongst the Liriope,as like glads,they tend to bend over with the weight of their flowers.It will be interesting to see how they do as the Florida summer progresses.And,of course,next year……
B is for …….
C is for …….
we use the Horse Conch shells(the not-so-good-ones,found through out the years,on Sanibel Island) as yard art and planters for bromeliads.

Jumping ahead to S……

I know nothing about spiders,except that I don’t care for them all that much.
So feel free to identify,
if you so chose.
And,that is your lesson for today.
