Time for Six items of interest from my garden on this first Saturday of 2021. I am seeing signs of good things to come in my garden. First, the Tropical Hydrangea (Dombeya wallachii) is flowering and has many buds.
A closer view of the flowers, they are 6 inches across and have a honey scent.
The native cycad of Florida, Coontie is producing cones, here is a female cone that has been pollinated – Coonties are pollinated by beetles. Wildlife eat the seeds and disperse them, I will be interested to see where they come up.
And the male cone:
The Papayas are ripening.
And I shall have tomatoes from the garden soon. This is a Yellow Pear tomato.
That is my six. To see more interesting items from gardens around the world visit The Propagator at http://www.thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com
Happy New Year and Happy Gardening.
