After the work day,
which is spent indoors,
it is gratifying to come home to the garden.
Hurriedly,change into gardening clothes,camera in one hand,glass of Merlot in the other,and head out to the garden.
Which is what I did,today…
Sunny,breezy,high 70’s,nary a cloud in the sky.
All work day cares quickly fell to the wayside….
Signs of Spring/Summer were all around.
The Australian Tree Fern made it through the winter without a blemish….
The first day lily bud is getting ready to blossom…..
Much earlier than last year.
The first Canna bud has formed….
Also,much earlier than last year.
The first bud on the Lisanthus….
An Anole protecting the plumeria…
The first Caladium has pushed its way through…
The earliest I have ever seen that happen.
A Red Drift Rose….
Another orchid is blooming…
The red bench is done and in place,in the front garden…
My painting technique was to hold a spray can of bronze primer in one hand,and a spray can of red paint in the other,and spray away.Not too complicated…
It,almost,matches the red of the front doors.
I think it needs a planter setting on it.
All of these brought a smile to my face,today,
but there is one thing that makes me break out into a silly grin.
From ear to ear.
Actually, a chuckle….
A true sign of Spring/Summer in Florida.
The first hot babe in a bathing suit,relaxing on a hot,sunny day in the pool….
Emma says Happy Return to Spring/Summer!
