Onward, spring


We've gotten a lot of rain in Central Florida in the last week, which has made the garden happy, happy, happy.
I bought a Feijoa sellowiana standard to go right next to my patio a couple of years ago and it really struggled for awhile. But, finally, blooms!

    Thank you Mary and Luis. My local nursery actually got in some Salvia madrensis, and I bought two. Hopefully they will bloom this fall and I'll be able to share some photos.
