May Front Yard


For the last 2 weeks, my white lilies have brightened my yard.

















My late amaryllis bloomed to join my white lilies.














When I stood next to my plumeria (frangipani), the three types of flowers were beautiful next to each other. What a view!























My spring flowers are now gone, and central Florida entered summer with highs in the 90’s (F) in May and close to 100 (F) Memorial Day. On Tuesday the temperature was 92 degrees F by 10:30 AM. See you lovely flowers again next spring.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. I smiled because your spring flowers are operating in the 90s! Our spring now is in the 60s (although we did have a couple of high 70s days this week before the temp dropped last night!) We don’t see our 90s flowers till July! Yours are beautiful!

    1. My sister lives in Farmington and so sick of rain. I’m coming to visit at the end of the month and I’m hoping it is in the 70’s or it will feel like winter to me!

  2. Oh they are so pretty! What a delight! Like paradise! So are there other flowering plants in summer in Florida?

    1. My yard is mostly tropical plants as most northern plants cannot handle the full Florida sun in my yard. I have the frangipani I show in this post and it blooms from April or May to end of September and then goes dormant for winter. I have tropical hibiscus in 3 colors that bloom most of the year. I also have an African iris that blooms and Florida native yellow iris (nothing like bearded iris- it has a small flower). In summer my 2 crepe myrtle trees also bloom.

  3. Frangipani is a gorgeous plant, very exotic to me, have never seen. Your white lilies are beautiful also.

  4. What wonderful colours and such an inviting welcome to your home. I do love spring blooms.
    Those temperatures are seriously warming up over there!

    Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. 🙂

  5. Oooh, plumeria. I love its fragrance. If only it weren’t too cool to grow it here, but no harm in trying. Such a beautiful trio you’ve showcased today, Carol. 🙂

  6. My goodness, Carol – am glad I was not in FL on Memorial day – it was in the 70ties here!
    You are right the Amaryllis, Lilies, and Frangipani look beautiful next to each other! Many thanks for sharing their beauty with All Seasons.Stay cool this week!

  7. Carol – you must be the envy of your neighbors with such lovely flowers in your hard. I especially like the frangipani – I can imagine the aroma from here!!! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, and letting us peek into your tranquil garden!

  8. Beautiful blooms and images. I am sure the scents are heavenly. Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  9. They are all just beautiful! It sure got HOT in a hurry here in FL! We need rain and a break from the heat. I’m already tired of staying inside! heehee! Hugs!

  10. One of the great pleasures after winter is when all the flowers bloom and we are surrounded by beauty all day.

  11. Nice mosaics. Beautiful lilies. Some of the others look like frangipani blooms.
    Have a good week
