Good morning everyone. It is Monday, partly cloudy skies, very breezy and the temperature is comfortable. No a.c. Hurray!

Here are some pictures I took this morning. It is a joy to go out now that the heat and humidity have lessened tremendously. Rain is in the forecast, along with temps in the 50's during the night Wed. and Thurs. This is the time of year FL living is great.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.


Bougainvillea and Louis Philippe Roses are shown here in my shed's garden.

Spicy Jatropha or Jatropha integerrima

Plant on a whim.

Lay the footpath where your heart says it should be.

Change things because you feel like it.

Garden for the love of it.

I love fall too! No more heat! I hope you fare well with the rain from the hurricane coming your way.

The roses are so vibrant. We just warmed UP to 60's for a few days. It is wonderful.

Beautiful roses. Great post. Getting any rain from Ida? We are. Hasn't it been a strange hurricane season?

I only WISH I could grow a bouganvillea that big! I never have any success with them here. Every wind we get, it loses its petals. So I will just admire your from afar ;-)

Wow the garden is looking so lovely. Mine is definitely on the down side and our weather is looking pretty lame compared to yours at this time. It's been raining like mad for something like forever at this point.

That sounds divine! So glad you are able to enjoy that Florida lifestyle now. The flowers are heavenly. :-)

Your garden areas will be my color for the next few months. I hope the weather stays nice for you. I think we will be cold for good next week. Beautiful flowers in such nice arrangements.
