This honeysuckle looks like it was a mistake for this location. I might regret it later because it is growing very fast and overpowering its corner of the garden.
Ground orchids, on the pathway to the front door.
The powderpuff tree looks recovered after I performed surgery last week when it suffered a branch tear from Hurricane Ike's winds.

In this picture you see my FIU Golden Panthers football flag. Florida International University is my college alma mater. My wife and youngest daughter are both alumni as well. This afternoon, the entire family will attend the football game against the University of South Florida, exciting because it will be our first home game this season and the inaugural game in our brand new on-campus stadium. “Go Panthers!”
The bougainvillea plant has been a disappointment this year with very few flowers and mostly green. This year I am planning on removing the front wooden gate and installing an iron gate. That just may be the end of my red bougainvillea plant!
