Some of my favorites this April are (from top left) fresh herbs...dill, oregano & basil...and green onions from the garden, the sunny blooms of the tabbebuia tree, and native flag iris.
Serissa's tiny white blossoms are an added perk on this beautiful green and white variegated shrub, amarylis and heaps of salad greens and radishes.

With spring comes an abundance of blooms and perfect weather. It seems that the majority of plants are geared to bloom in spring, making the garden look like a veritable non-stop flower show, but summer is just around the corner, and Florida's oppressive heat and humidity make it a little harder to keep the flower show going. Fortunately, we do have some tough plants we can depend on.
