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!

More on the Light

This Lady palm is my favorite. The sunlight really lights up these fronds, and the blocks of dark green where the leaves criss-cross makes for a very interesting photo.


The dark burgundy backside of this Calathea leaf turns to shades of rose when drenched in sunlight.

The large leaves of the Lotus begonia look fabulous all lit up.

The neighbor's Ti plants look extraordinary.



Large-sized leaves, such as this Calathea, look great illuminated by the sun.

Backlit photos are the best for showing leaf and plant detail, as you have so nicely illustrated.

Love just seeing the sunshine on this gloomy day here. This also reminds me I have a palm outside that I should bring in if it isn't too late.

Susan, Love the different leaves you've displayed here. The soft angle of our glorious sunlit days this time of year draws my eye to stare. My Ti plants are like bright lights in the front garden all afternoon. My lotus begonia flourishing not too far away from them. :-)

Isn't this weather absolutely divine? You probably have had some damage over in your area. Here, only some tinged tips of very tender plants that are fully exposed.

How cold have you gotten over in your neck of the woods?

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Blessings,
Meems
