Sunday Morning


I love Florida! February, sunshine, blue sky, snowbirds singing, flowers here and there sprinkled throughout the 'winter garden', what more should I want ;-)


A sunny Sunday Morning in February



This vine keeps growing and growing, and it does not stop flowering. When do I cut it back? 


Passiflora vitifolia

 I am hoping for Nectarines this year if the critters don't beat me to them.


Nectarine flowers

It's a wild one, this orchid, but I am in love with the white flowers


Vanda terete 'Diana'

 This flower promises short and fat and sweet bananas in 6 to 8 months


Musa Raja Puri

Roses in the garden - now is the time to trim them back.


Antique Rose 'Belinda's Dream'

Old Garden Rose 'Duchesse De Brabant'

The flowers of the basket plant have a very nice fragrance, I have it planted throughout Myrtle Glen.


Basket Plant, Callista fragrans

It's about time to harvest Kumquat for making jam.


Kumquat Nagami

This Dendrobium plant was a rescue from a box store, it thanks me with flowers every year


Dendrobium no ID 2007

  1. I so envy your kumquats! I am just a bit too far north to grow these. I discovered them a few years ago on a vacation to Seaside, Florida. Our cottage had a shrub laden with them just outside the entrance. We gorged ourselves on them. Unfortunately, I never see them in the grocery store.

    1. Kumquats are small trees, perfect for larger planters, and you can overwinter the Kumquat in the garage :-)
