Because our temperatures are changing to Autumn,
I wanted to post some of the last of what I call
The Caesalpinia pulcherrima loves our very hot summers.
I can already see the seed pods forming,
so these blooms are coming to an end until next year.
You may refer to the plant as
"Pride of Barbados" or "Mexican Bird of Paradise"
Portulaca is another flowering plant
I can count on for the hottest days of summer.
It, too, is beginning to fade with the cooler night temperatures
As you might remember, this year I bought my first Satsuma Orange Tree.
And, much to my surprise,
the small tree gifted me with about a dozen oranges.
So move over Summer Orange....
and make room for chrysanthemums and
