It’s a hot, humid summer here in central Florida. I haven’t shared that many photos of my tropical garden this summer as it’s taken time to rebuild after the loss of so many plants in January due to 2 freezing nights. I replaced my huge dead red hibiscus with a new small bush back in the spring, and the little guy produces pretty red flowers almost daily.
I lost my large frangipani (plumeria) tropical tree and only had 2 cuttings left. One large cutting finally started blooming in August. I missed 4 months of flowers and am thrilled. The second cutting is growing and I’m hoping it will flower next year.
My Florida yellow iris is covered in little blooms.
My small crepe myrtle tree is covered in blooms and buds.
My miniature Mexican petunia has lovely little flowers.
I’m going to close with a few shots of a yard in the neighborhood. This neighbor isn’t really into gardening but his yard is beautiful year round with evergreen bushes and palms. I enjoy driving by as its classic landscape could be anywhere (minus the palm trees) and always looks beautiful.
