Oh February, how I heart you!

February is the time of year I think I love the most...it's when Spring has sprung, birds are singing their most romantic songs, plants are beginning to bloom their best flowers for our viewing pleasure, love is in the air with St. Valentine, the weather is sunny and cool and well of course the best part is my birthday (the 18th)!  Yippee for me!  :)

Nothing grandiose to write home about lately, just trying to get back into the swing of things after being sick with the flu for so long. Since the weather here in South Florida has been perfect to start planting, many of our landscape jobs came in during my down time, so we have been playing catch up with our schedule.  I think being cooped up inside forced my plant fever to flourish.  While I am at the nursery's picking up plants for our clients, I am also a few for me too, hee hee.  I am currently redesigning our front island and will be posting on the progress soon so stay tuned.

In the meantime here are a few things in our neck of the woods today...
Just perfect for Valentines Day...coleus, bloodleaf & alocasia 'lutea'
 
One of our new additions: colocasia 'blue Hawaii"...super saturated colors in the light!

Ornamental bananas, aloe blooms, dracena 'lemon-lime'
and green wart ferns growing as ground cover.

Yes, you are seeing correctly, this "lost-tag" orchid is growing upside down in
our simpson stopper tree but it's still producing beautiful flowers (top right).
Lower right is one of our air plants blooming.
Where ever you may be in the world, I wish you lots of love on this St. Valentine's Day!
Happy Gardening and enjoy your weekend!

  2. What a gorgeous orchid! Do you have any others growing so casually in trees? And happy birthday to you!

    1. Hi Jean, thank you very much! I have palm trees, a black ironwood tree, Jamaican capper and various other trees where I put many of my orchids. They seem to do much better there rather than in clay pots which dry out too fast. Though I believe you saw a few of my other posts showing the orchid move, lol. So glad you stopped by! Hope you have a great week!

      Best wishes,
      Sheri
