This yellow hibiscus is my flower of the week.
What is a Longan tree???
Dimocarpus longan, commonly known as the longan, is a tropical tree that produces edible fruits. The tree belongs to the soapberry family, to which the lychee also belongs. It is native to Southern Asia, the longan ("Dragon Eye"), is so named because it resembles an eyeball when the fruit is open.
I am not done planting fruit trees; my next acquisition is a lychee and a star fruit tree. I don’t know where I’m going to put them, but I’ll figure it out. So far I have three mango trees, an avocado tree, several dragon fruit trees, a key lime tree and a date palm.
After twenty plus years living in this house, I finally gave in and screened the back porch. I am not a fan of screens but the older I get the less tolerance I have for mosquitoes, now I can seat in the back porch with a cold beer after work and enjoy my garden.
