Today I celebrated Labor Day by spending the day working in the garden. After two months away, is going to take some time to bring everything under control. Today I filled out three garbage containers of cuttings and weeds. (I have a couple of more days to go)
I relocated my St. Francis statue to the back of the garden and I was rewarded with all these rain lilies. (Someone up there liked the move)
Firebush (Hamelia Patens) this plant is not the best looking plant in my garden and the flowers are nothing to talk about, but if you want to attract butterflies and bees this is the one.
Firebush is native plant to South Florida and is popular with landscapers, the plant is aggressive and needs trimming a couple of times a year, but it blooms most of the year.
