I found a gardening show on Amazon Prime call Gardners World. This show is produce by the BBC in Great Britain, very popular with British gardeners. The show main presenter Monty Don does the show from his own magnificent garden, giving information and tips on the do and don't of different plants. Other presenters visit public and private gardens throughout the British Isles. The one hour show is on in Britain from spring to fall every Friday night. One result from watching this show has been that now I am hook on using cuttings and sowing seeds. The shows on Amazon Prime are about four years old, for newer shows you have to subscribe to BritBox a subscription service for all BBC shows.

This is what the place looked before, like a fool I left the trunk of the old Rangoon Creeper in, it only took a couple of weeks for the shoots to come up all over the newly planted bromeliads. It took me a couple of days to dig out the old trunk. I kept a couple of the bromeliads and the rest were put outside by the curbside for anyone to take.
New plants in the garden

The resident squirrel hanging outside her new condominium. Only in South Florida do squirrels make a nest in palm tree.
This is a Resurrection Lilly (ID with a new phone app) I don't remember how this plant got to my garden, but it has become one of my favorite. This is one of the few plants in the garden that burst out the ground in spring and dies back in the fall. The flowers are nice but the leaves are striking.
