A Change In The Weather…


While my heart,thoughts,and prayers are with the Northeast,I can’t help but breathe a sigh of relief it wasn’t us in Florida.
...can you say Charley,Frances,Jeanne,and Wilma?…

Finally…..
….Sandy has brought welcome relief from the heat and humidity of our Florida summer weather.

And the garden is ever so happy….

Dwarf Powder Puff….

Where these came from,I have no idea.But I’ll keep ‘em….growing in a container in the veggie garden.

Collards are up,but for some reason aren’t doing very well this year.Maybe they’ll improve with the cooler weather?

Does anything else say Autumn like Firebush?

Plumeria against the dark sky of the incoming front…

For some reason,the only ones that bloomed this year were the yellow,and the yellow and cream.Last year,the only ones that bloomed were the pink and the reds.Could the weather have an effect on them?

Great photos, and wonderful weather we are most definitely having.

I too was relieved Sandy passed us by. Frances, Jeanne and Wilma are still fresh in our minds.

Enjoy your gardens in the cooler weather.

I, too am glad that Sandy passed us by...the winds over the weekend were strong enough. Your autumn garden is looking beautiful and your veggies are growing nicely. Your powderpuff and cassia are outstanding!
