This year my New Year’s resolution is a simple one; spend more time in the outdoors. Today I got up early, took my camera and binoculars and headed to the Matheson Hammock nature trail next to Fairchild gardens. This trail is less than a mile; it has a great tree cover and an excellent variety of tropical plants. It is consider a great place for bird watching, unfortunate this morning they were nowhere to be seen. In the coming weeks I will explore other nature trails in the metro area and will write about it in my blog.
This week at the DragonFly Garden
The next tree to put on a show this winter is the Starburst Tree.
Other flowers in the garden.
The resident hummingbird keeps visiting the firebush tree.
