The powderpuff flower, from my powderpuff tree.
My neighborhood in western Miami used to be a swamp, part of the Everglades eco-system. During the early 1960’s, developers arrived, drained the swamps, and filled them with crushed rocks.
Today, if I want to plant a tree, I need to dig through about a foot of crushed rock. When I planted my plumeria bush a couple of months ago, I was feeling a little lazy and, as you can see in my last post, I paid the price when Fay passed by this week.
