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!

Oh, I dearly do love spring. 
Let me count the ways . . .

Indeed, SPRING has arrived!! I just love this season as this season is often associated with rebirth, renewal and regrowth.

I love y our blog! because I am Florida blogger too!
I love to garden- especially veggie garden. But I can't live without the beauty of flowers all around my home.
I'm not as good at flower beds (yet), but yours are gorgeous!
I saw on your side bar that you have a list of other Florida garden bloggers- I can't wait to check them out as time allows me.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often:)
oh and I am your most recent 'friend-follower'

Susan, those photos are awesome, it makes me want to go and get one of everything, and me... the veggie gardener - you might have converted me (somewhat).

Glorious! I love your purple petunias and your snapdragons. I really want to try snapdragons and pansies next year, around my front steps. I think I'm finally at that point. I have the trees and shrubs in place and now I can have some fun with annuals! Finally!

Love all the colorful flowers and foliage of your spring garden. Since our Central Florida winter was almost like spring, I'm not sure what the rest of spring will be like. So far, so good!
Enjoy this beautiful weekend.

Just beautiful Susan! I recently bought the same plant as shown in your first photo with the yellow and white flowers. The blooms remind me of candy and it's so different from anything currently in my butterfly garden. Looks beautiful in your pretty white pot.

Can you tell me what plant that is in the second picture from the top? The one with the purple flowers that resemble orchid blooms?

David said...

Wow, Susan, you must have a thousand blooms in your yard. I bet the butterflies love you.

Hi Eli, That purple plant is angelonia. You can buy it in purple, pink or white. It's cold hardy but needs a good trim back in the spring. They're prevalent in the box stores. I have both the white and purple and really like it.

Hi Heart's Hunger, Always glad to find another Florida gardener. I will definitely be visiting your blog.
