Rainy days in FL

After a break from Tropical Storm Debby...
I headed outside to see what was
going on in the garden.

 Eveything has been growing like crazy..
including the weeds!


This is one of my favorite crinium lilies...


after two days it finally opened up...
it smells divine!!!

The Zebra butterflies are also
enjoying this non rainy afternoon...


My Yucca is standing proud and blooming...


Pink Princess Philodendron is
happy and finally climbing up
that rusty trellis.

Rusty trellises in the yard...

 Love the color combination of this dracena.



The ginger is blooming...


A pretty mushroom in the front lawn...


Mandevilla  vine is also enjoying
the rains from the last couple
of days....

So much is happening in the garden,
lots of weeding and trimming to be done.

And the mosquitos are BAD...
I had one fly up and and say...
"hey little girl you look mighty tasty!
lol...

Have a great summer...
Sylvia

When I stepped into the showroom, I felt like I was in Provence.
The scent of lavender and the sound of running water from the antique limestone fountain along with the incredible selection of French garden antiques were really impressive. If you are looking for very large garden ornaments, French planters, etc. this is the showroom to visit. A total of 15,000 square feet of the most incredible French garden antiques, French limestone fountains, fireplace mantels and the most selective collection of planters from France with immediate availability. Each piece feels real, the atmosphere is so calming and rural. A true and unique gem to be found in West Palm Beach! Their website is www.authenticprovence.com
