September Yard In Central Florida

September is the height of hurricane season. It’s been hot, and we’ve had rain which means everything is growing. After years of getting up with an alarm clock, I wake up early most mornings. Sometimes I see a beautiful pink sky.

I go out in the yard early in the morning after sunrise and sometimes late afternoon as the sun is getting low in the west behind my house.  The photo right below is my arbor covered in a Florida native honeysuckle.  Bees, butterflies, and birds love this plant. Every spring birds make a nest in the honeysuckle, and I watched them fly in and out for several months.

My tropical peach hibiscus had gorgeous blooms 2 weeks ago.

My frangipani (plumeria) still has a few flowers.

These tiny flowers are periwinkle or vinca.

I hope you are enjoying September wherever you are. Wishing you blue skies!

  1. Your morning skies are really lovely. I hope you can find a new place to live where you can still have a bit of a garden — and be able to take a few of your lovely plants.

    1. I plan on buying a potted amaryllis after the move. I will certainly miss my garden but I can no longer really work in it.

  2. I have been waking early lately and I’ve been seeing the sun rise. It is beautiful. What a fantastic back yard you have, your tropical peach hibiscus really is gorgeous!

  3. I love all the pretty flowers, and that pretty pink sky. Your honeysuckle looks exactly like the oneI have in my planter. If mine grew like this one, I would be very happy. Have a great Sunday Carol.

  4. Your frangipani (plumeria) has lovely peach/coral flowers and I love that shade. Sunsets wonderful too. Saw this post at InLinkz 279 Senior Salon Pit Stop. My posts this week are #98 through 102. Enjoy this beautiful day and be well. Warm regards, Nancy Andres @ Colors 4 Health

  5. It hit home to see periwinkle , hibiscus and plumeria blooming in your part of region . The magnificent pink sky is a scene to look forward after a rainy day. Thanks for sharing with Garden affair.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
