I feel like we’ve been playing in the dirt way too long in the house. With summer fast approaching…yes, I said summer. This is South Florida. We flew past “winter” into just about summer already – it is hot! Any way, with real summer right around the corner, it has been a top priority to get as much of the yard done as possible. And now we can reveal a pretty much done South Florida landscape.
With the rainy season approaching, all these plants will be filled in and lush before we know it. We’ll add a bit of mulch too to help with the weeds.
Here are some close-ups of my favorites. We have a variety of greens and flowers that hold up really well, year round with our weather. I especially love the bougainvillea and the orchids
We also finished a hedge around the front perimeter of the home. Here is a shot of it along the new fence in the front.
I think our neighbors are finally getting to the point where they can’t say “We are the house next to the overgrown house.” or “We are two houses past the junkyard.”
I know a ton of you are out there freezing your butts off and this is probably a torturous post. I am sorry. Come for a visit. You won’t regret getting out of the cold for a bit.
