Here in Miami, or as I sometimes call it...the end of the earth~since we are soooo far in the deep south, Spring is welcome but in a different fashion. We only have a couple more weeks of great weather ahead, and then the dreaded humidity, heat and daily downpours start to set in. We do need the rain, as we have been in a pretty severe drought this winter with it being nice and dry....but it does get oppressive and the air conditioner tends to be the only relief from about April through November. So my Northern friends....while you have winter to coop you up, we have about 8 months of heat to keep us indoors!
We have been getting the house and the gardens ready for hot weather, and while outside pulling weeds this morning I snapped a few photos of our tropical gardens to share.
The Orchids are in Full Bloom!
Pretty in Pink
A Nutmeg Tree Flower
I love to use large clamshells as natural birdbaths
Lots of Tropical Ferns. They last year round and do particularly well in Spring and Summer in Miami
A Massive Staghorn Fern. This could seriously do some damage if it fell on you!
We live on a freshwater canal. Time to put the old Sea Nymph in the water for some fun:-)
And finally, I love our street. It's lined with HUGE Royal Palm Trees and looks so regal when you drive down the street. Today is trash pick~up day~lol!
Thanks for reading and looking and have fun in your Garden this weekend if possible!
In Celebration of Spring, with every sale in the SWEET SPRING Boutique on the website at SHABBYFUFU this weekend, you will receive one of these Darling Flocked Bottle Brush Trees with Glittered Eggs........while supplies last. I will announce here if, and when we run out of the FREE tree promotion. YOU MUST LET ME KNOW THAT YOU READ ABOUT IT HERE:-)
Off to work in the STUDIO, I hope to list more of the Marie Antoinette and German Dolls perhaps later in the weekend or if not...then early next week.
