Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Brrrr... It's Cold Outside!




There's always one night when we feel the frosty breath of Old Man Winter, and this year was no exception. With temperatures dipping to 31 degrees on Saturday morning, a few plants were burned. The very top layers of leaves on the angel trumpet crumbled at the feel of his icy touch, and a few leaves on the Jewels of Opar turned black when the blanket covering one plant was blown off. All-in-all, we lucked out as many other tropical plants and our staghorn ferns escaped his wintery wrath!
