Cool days, the bluest of skies overhead, and the sun shining in all it's splendor...that's Central Florida in January. A few dreary days are quickly forgotten, when another perfect day is always just around the corner. This past week was the closest we've come to winter weather though, I actually wore real shoes for a couple of days, instead of flip-flops. A few tender plants, mostly annuals, are beginning to look the worse for wear, but roses are still blooming freely...
'Don Juan' Rose
'Louis Philippe' Rose
'Iceberg, Cl.' on the gazebo.
Against the sky...
One last bloom around the gazebo, a lovely, fragrant gardenia.
My largest Japonica Camellia is just beginning to bloom. I believe this is 'Desire'.
Out front a Sasanqua Camellia, 'Cotton Candy'.
Hibiscus blooms always look like 'summer' to me...
Pentas are blooming everywhere, and still attracting an array of butterflies.
'Yangtze' daylily, confused by our weather.
'Black and Blue' Sage.
My last bloom, the tiniest...Purple Queen.
