Welcome to my South Florida garden via Six on Saturday. It seems counterintuitive to feature flowers so late in the year in the Northern Hemisphere. However, this far south, when the weather moderates it is like late spring climate-wise and some of the “normal” summer flowers are in bloom here.
My first African Marigold, probably in decades. These came in a cutting flower seed mix I tried just to see what would grow.
Zinnias, I have been enjoying these as cut flowers for a couple of weeks.
More Zinnias, these are ‘Green Envy’.
Sweet 100 tomatoes, just about ready to pick.
On a more tropical note, the Dombeya wallachii has just started to flower. I can hear the bees buzzing as I approach the plant. Someone aptly described the fragrance of the flowers as cake batter.
The whole Dombeya. At 15 feet tall, this should be spectacular soon.
That is my six this winter Saturday. To see more posts, visit http://www.thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com
Happy Gardening and Happy Holidays!
