We experienced a wonderful cool and sunny weekend in South Florida, perfect gardening weather. Time to work on my neglected front yard, I trimmed and pull weeds, so much so that I filled my garbage container. The ground orchids are my anchor plants in the front of the house, and after a summer of plentiful blooms; these plants take on a brownish color during the winter, needing a major trim. I also did some deadheading, one of my favorite gardening tasks (I find it therapeutic). Now that the days are getting longer, I will be spending more time after work deadheading most of my flowering plants. (A good way to unwind, with scissors in one hand and a beer or a glass of wine in the other)
This week at The DragonFly Garden
My vegetable garden is beginning to recover after it was destroyed by the rainy days in January. Soon I will be making my lunch salads from the garden.
We had another new visitor to the garden this week, a Black and White Warbler.
I finally got a picture of the Gray Catbird bathing in the birdbath.
