Bloom Day - August 2018

A month goes by so fast. I am trying to be better at following May Dream Gardens' monthly bloom day event. Life just has a way of tossing stones into my schedule path. And here I am, late once again!

This spider lily is a reliable bloomer, all through summer time. I received a few bulbs from a garden friend many years ago.

Flowers in July


Oh, so nice and hot and steamy Central Florida in July! It is like inside a greenhouse so humid one has to think to breathe and not swallow.

What's blooming - March 2018

During the last couple months, four severe winter storms up north pushed cold temperatures into Florida, not freezing but chilly and cold enough for my tropicals to sulk. February flowers are this year's March flowers.

 August. Florida. Heat. Humidity. But still, where ever I look I see flowers in Myrtle Glen.
