The garden from the inside

On this rainy Saturday all I can do is admire the garden from inside the house, there is something beautiful and different in a wet garden.  I have so many projects on the drawing board with summer around the corner, but the rain has been relentless for the last week and a half.  I took this past week off from work to get my garden summer projects started, but a head-cold and the rain put a stop on all the plans.  Alberto the first tropical storm of the season (way too early, hurricane season starts next week) has been seating in the Gulf of Mexico dumping rain on all us and is getting old.  We needed the rain, the dry season was long and unusually dry but after 10 days of the same, we are ready for the sun.

Who is eating my Hibiscus plants?

I noticed that some of my Hibiscus plants have been attacked by a ferocious eater.  So far I have not been able to catch the offender.

Is your job to guard my garden and eat plant eating bugs. 

Today at the DragonFly garden

This morning we had a rainy day in South Florida.  All the plans to work outside had to be postpone, not been one to seat around with nothing to do, I decided to clear and clean my enclosed back patio.  Lots of clutter had accumulated since hurricane Irma.

 The yellow chair was on its way to the garbage bin, but I decided to use my last yellow spray paint can.  Now looks like new

 My morning view while I sit with a cup of coffee ready to take on the day.
New flowers this week

The first flowers from the Rangoon Creeper,  soon it will be cover with flowers.

It only took a couple of weeks for the Plumeria tree to be full of leaves and flowers

One of my favorite bromeliad flowers
