Goodbye, July
I never got around to broad views. I stood with my camera on my singlepod -- I don't know the correct term for it but it's like one leg of a tripod -- at the ready for butterfly pictures. The best I could do was this Skipper and the Gulf Fritillary below. I...

10 Ways to Optimize Pinterest Boards
Here are some things I learned while using Pinterest as a pin board for things I want to remember. Pinterest should not be static. A pin is not forever. Curate. Alphabetize your Boards.  They're easily dragged up or down and side to side to put them in orde...

Curcuma, Tropical Ginger
Curcumas are blooming early this year.  Often called Hidden Ginger, for some reason the flowers are not hidden under leaves this year. I pinned a scene from Albert Hadley's garden in Naples, FL which has the caption, " A boardwalk in the garden replaced a c...

Where Shall I Put the Tree Face?
The Children gave me a tree face. It needs to find a home.  I first looked at Red Cedar trees, Juniperus virginiana. I found a wonderful article about Red Cedars  HERE . The trunk of this one is uneven, even multitrunked. Wonder who lives here? The Secret G...

Blooms in the Night
Last night there were 6 Epiphyllum blossoms. I've had plants and divisions of those plants, since 2002. I gave away some pots of blooming size plants this summer just to make room. They give a clue as to which night is the one by showing white as the tepals...

The Upper Garden, another Tour
When I went out for last pics of the Upper Garden this morning, an azalea had out-of season blooms. In spring, the Upper Garden sports a long row of azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. The rest of the year, they are evergreen foliage that hold the rest of the ga...

A Last Look at July
A greenhouse in July is not a show place. On the other hand, it is possible to easily root plants under the mist that helps with temperature control.  When wind blew down a stalk of Angel Trumpet I took 6 cuttings. They have roots growing out the bottom of ...

More Broods of Butterflies
There's really no need to go out in hot sun and humidity to take pictures of butterflies just like the ones that were here last year and several years before that on the same nectar plants I always grow, except that I do it anyway. Gulf Fritillaries sharing...

Forced Bulb Decisions
When the daily 'feels like' is 110º one has to think cool thoughts. Nothing is as cooling as thinking about forced bulbs for the dead of winter. After decades of forced bulbs in water, I've narrowed to a favorite: Hyacinths planted in pots of soil. Mama alw...

Morning After
Epiphyllums bloomed last night, a total of 6 blossoms. I put the story on my greenhouse blog,  Dotty Plants . This is a bloom from 2013. Anticipation is the thrill for me, so I didn't stay up to see the fully open blooms this time. They were open enough for...

Monday Is Disorganized
I discovered a new organization method this weekend, KonMari, she calls it. I told He-Who-Mows that it has taken more than 50 years for me to learn how to fold underwear and t-shirts so they all fit neatly into a drawer the way my nephew's have since he was...

If You Came to Visit my Gardens
If you were coming from Florida, you would turn into the driveway on the south side. If you missed that turn or were coming from the North, take the drive just north of the Crape Myrtles. This front corner of the Upper Garden is to the right of the north dr...

About the best thing to be said about winter weeds is that they are green. Oh, and they provide nectar for the occasional butterfly that hap
