The last couple of days we had torrential rains in South Florida, this morning the wet garden was not conducive for any gardening activity.
A good day to photograph all the blooms brought on by all the rain. The clear morning didn't last long by noon the schedule daily rains were back.
The purple allmanda is blooming again, after a severe pruning this past winter
The heliconia or lobster claw, this plant is a pest but I love the flowers.

In between butterflies, I did got some work done, I cut a couple of dead banana trees, and planted a papaya and a mandarin tree near the fence.
My bougainvilleas are doing well in the containers
Rose Moss are great for hanging baskets and can take our summer heat
The succulents love the May sun
This picture is the path in the back of the garden
