A close neighbor allowed me to take photos in their garden. It’s been hot here in central Florida for the last few weeks with a temperature 12 to 15 degrees F hotter than normal for March. Our high temperatures have been in the 80’s nearly the whole month. The golden rain tree in the front yard blooms in October, drops hundreds of seed pods, and then loses its leaves. The leaves started to grow a couple of weeks ago and the tree is still holding onto some seed pods.
