Labor day in the garden

This Labor Day the weather in South Florida was rainy and muggy. This morning I was able to put in a couple of hours in the back yard, with all the rain in the last few days the plants are going wild. This corner needed some sprucing up. The banana season is done for the year, and it was time to cut and remove the old trees. I counted nine new trees in different stages of growths.
I took out a plumbago tree from this corner that was not working in the shade.

This weekend our oldest daughter got engaged and I was told to get the garden ready for the engagement party next month.

Congratulations on your daughter's engagement. Now you get to entertain! Have fun getting the garden all spruced up. It doesn't look like it needs much sprucing up though. Everything looks great!
