A little Florida Warmth
Hi everyone. First I'd just like to say that we have a new gardening forum up dedicated to attracting birds. It's new and could really use some active members. I'd love it if you joined the Bird Gardening and Nature Community. It's been raining down here several days straight but today the sun finally came out and it was a beautiful bright 68F day. I found these little beauties in my backyard. They are most likely Oxalis violacea or violet wood sorels. I love these little bright flowers and am always happy to see them when they pop out. Well there are more not so good pics behind the cut. Here's a wider view of the sorels. So pretty!! So small. I can't wait for the Crocus. They should be coming out about this time too. A small sunflower. I don't know what's in our soil that our sunflowers rarely get taller than four feet. A slightly taller sunflower. Some of the cherry tomatoes I mentioned that are getting unruley in a previous post. Here you see my husband's hand picking one. I've never had a tomato plant die. I've always had to take them out because they get too big. I may have to do this with this plant since I want to grow some other varieties and this one is choking out a Beef Stake that is not as stall as it. Well for those of you up in the snow I hope this little sunshine I posted will make your day. Cheers.
