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!

Wintering Poolside


During the winter months my orchids get relocated to the patio where they bask in the morning sunlight while lounging poolside. Hey, they are tropical beauties after all. But the best part about having them in view is that I get to enjoy all the wonderful blooms they produce. And, this year they did not disappoint. Perhaps they appreciate their winter home . . . or could it be the extra "tlc" they get because they're so close at hand. Whichever the case, I am always in awe of their perfect beauty and certainly appreciate having them near.

Oh, they are glorious, Susan. Your pool area must look like a tropical resort. My favorite is the big hot pink one!

Hi Chris...I'm afraid my pool area is too sunny in the summer. I wish I could keep them close though.

Hi Lorraine & Leslie...It is hard to pick a favorite as each one is very unique and they're all pretty. :-)

Hi Eli...Hey, not a bad idea. You might enjoy it, too.
