  1. Oh gosh! Those are some beautiful close ups. I'm sure the plants loved the summer sun, as proven by your last post. I love how you really made your garden look very tropical and lively. A testament to your skill as a gardener. Thank you for sharing such lovely pictures! More power to you and your garden!

    1. Thanks a lot Mitchell for the compliments! The plants really do love all the sun that they get in the yard once summer gets going (after some initial burning when they go back outside in the spring). I'm glad that you enjoyed the pics!
