I forgot about my resting bitch face and smirked in the second one. This is where I'm starting, lost a bit of muscle in my bicep. 😯

It finally happened. I have no recollection of buying or planting this and I don't know it's name! Can someone help?

What do you think, pruned or unpruned Purple Smoke Bush?

I thought it was my imagination that my hydrangeas were taking a while to wake up... Turns out I was right. Top was 6/4/13. Bottom was today. Looks like the cold winter killed off most of the branches, as well as mist of my Butterfly Bush and Caryopteris. Add the first year plants that died and I have had more destruction than ever before. :(

My first time growing tomatoes! I chose pots on a high table due to mischievous dogs, rabbits, and because I am not ready to make a full bed but want to experience veggie gardening. Have any advice? 
First time growing anything edible after 15+ years of strictly flower gardening. Started simple... Three kinds of tomatoes in self watering pots. If anyone has advice for a total newbie, let's hear it! +Colleen Ingram

Do you take weekly progress pictures of your garden too. Win/win for me... I enjoy taking my time touring my yard and sometimes notice things in pictures that I wouldn't otherwise. It's also good for long back to figure out what didn't survive the winter.

This is one week's progress after weeding and laying down new mulch.

Can you  help my parents with suggestions?  They recently moved into a home in The Villages in Florida which is zone 9a/9b.  I live in zone 7 and don't know much about tropicals.  Being seniors, they would like no/low maintenance and flower or foliage color as long as possible. 

They have full sun to part shade and do have a sprinkler system for supplemental water.  They might do large planters in the front of the house as well.  The only plants I knew to suggest because I've always coveted them but could never grow them year round were Agapanthus (below) and Plumeria.

Can you help?  I would appreciate it!
