i have a few miami spring bloom posts set up from drives through different neighborhoods, parks and around our neighborhood as well

however, despite the lack of rain, our garden has been doing some pretty amazing things lately

well, i think so anyway

so this week i share with you yet again our orchids, hibiscus and several others

joining Annie with how does your garden grow?

oooooooo ahhhhhhhhh avocados. i strongly dislike the avocado tree. mostly because it’s blooming again, thinks it’s fall so there are massive amounts of leaves everywhere including in the pool. next house, no fruit trees. palm trees only
