Although Florida boasts a year-round growing season, at no time of year is it more active (and spectacular) than during May! Today’s submission was taken on 5/31/2012, just before sundown:
I’ve changed the cutting garden around quite a bit since Spring. The calladiums outgrew their germination pots and moved to permanent homes throughout the bed; the groundsel bush has been replaced with lily bulbs and potted gaillardias that finally started blooming:
This was my first season growing Blanket Flowers, (aka Gaillardia) and I started the seeds quite late. After this bloom cycle I’ll dig them into the “full sun” corner of the bed and suspect they’ll flower much earlier next year. 🙂
That’s all from my end! Please click the Zemanta-provided links that follow for more EXCELLENT interpretations of this week’s challenge!
Until next time…

What gorgeous foliage you have! I can tell that a lot of hard work goes into your effortless garden. Beautiful!
Thank you, Anne! What helps immensely is late afternoon thunderstorms almost every day. Without rain, I’d never be able to water enough to keep things going!
She’s a lovely girl i bet she has some nice spots to curl up in 🙂
Oh she does! Funniest thing is how fast she adapted to Florida! she’s definitely one who prefers a warm climate!
What a beautiful garden – and you are growing a gorgeous cat too!
Thank you so much…on both counts!
This is a great photo, with nice pops of color and a beautiful cat to pull it all together…thanks!
Hi Cindy, and thank you for the validation! 😉
That’s EXACTLY what I said to myself when I chose the picture! I thought, “hmmm….Clarisse really pulls it all together…this’ll work!”
Clarisse just “allows” you to tend her garden lol
LOL you got that right!!! 🙂
An abundance of riches… 🙂
Your plants are so pretty. I love looking at before and after pictures of growth. It’s almost like magic. 🙂
Clarisse is so pretty. She looks like a princess sitting there waiting for you her loyal servant to grow her a beautiful place to nap and maybe chase a bug or two. 😉
