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!

The colors of autumn in my late November garden.
Orchids in rich golden colors with splashes of red or brown.



Colors in orange and red tones.


Milkweed

Hibiscus

Fashion Azaleas


Bromeliads & Tillandsias


And, a volunteer tomato plant

The first photo of orchids is stunning! What a gorgeous color, and perfect for fall.

Nancy...It is a beautiful orchid. I always look forward to new blooms.

Beautiful flowers. When I first looked at them they seem artificial they were so colorful. I am now in my "gray phase" of the year. I can tell I am already suffering from color deficiency. Thanks for showing us some color.

Susan said...

Lisa...I'll keep that color coming. We're having a real cool fall which is turning our leaves into bright colors. Exciting for us down here in the lower south.

Hi Susan, your flowers are so beautiful! I'm glad you stopped and left a comment, now I have another wonderful Florida garden to visit. :) Have a good day.

Hi Susan~

Lovely photos of your blooms! I particularly liked the Azalea. I'm not sure if I can grow that down here in zone 10 but I may have to give it a try.
Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind words about the garden art.

Adding you to my blog list now :)
