Florida Gardening Pictures of the Day - 29
Thank you Sandy!!!!! And for the beauteous Camellia. Sooooo pretty!
I love the pic, just beautiful, it could almost bring me over to the pink side, just incredible.
Thank you. Next week I am going up to the Camellia Society's Gardens
Hoping to have lots of pictures
That Camellia is soooo pretty. My MIL used to have so many of those in her yard, she would always cut them and make a nice arrangement during the holidays on the dinner table with them.
Nice photos guys! I love the brilliance of the hib colors & that water lily virtually glows as if lit from within.
Beautiful pics, Sandy. Love that camellia. Can't wait to get to FL to see ours but have to wait until the first of Jan. this year -- doctors appointments pushed ahead way too far for our liking, but will spend Christmas in AR for the first time in about 10 years.
That is one big Hibiscus pureplants...great pic too.
wren I love the water lily, I saw the other one picture somewhere else. I'd love to have a water pond...but no more room...unless another tree dies...lol.
How neat Sandy. I like to watch them through that whole process. And I'm sure you've noticed how the "water" drips from their abdomen as they become true butterflies.
What beautiful color on this one! Looks like someone painted it. Oh! Someone did! Mother Nature. She sure is an artist without compare.
Not only the pattern but the pattern within the pattern. And the itsy bitsy teeny tiny detail. Awesome! And Sandy --- that's one fine lens you got there. Niiiiiiiiiice.
What I meant was that it was so real like I was there in person looking at it. So close. So fine. Let's term it this way --- I can feel the petals between my fingertips. And get pollen on my hands.
LOL Thank you
You need to go up there, it is at the National Camellia Society's Massee Lane Gardens near Fort Vally, GA
If you go they say that the best time is Feb and March. I am going to return both months if I can! LOL
Won't be spending any money till house is built. Then will probably be too broke to spend anything. Won't HAVE anything to spend.
Thats OK flaflwrgrl,
A home is definitely worth sacrificing for. Don't forget my idea of us all helping with plants to landscape your new place.
We can call it a roundup. I have only been to 2 RU's but have many great memories and plants to show for it.
The Lord loveth a cheerful giver.
HAVE A THANKFUL AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
And HAPPY THANKSGIVING to ALL!!!!!
Sandy, I have been to those gardens. They are beautiful! They also sell plants art a reasonable price.
for your butterfly enclosures I forgot to mention I have remnant 8 foot wide rolls of black poly shade-cloth that you can stretch over any frame and tack-down similar to window screen except larger thicker weave and it lasts forever in the UV sunshine. Let me know to bring you some at the next swap meet. Helps keep-out the hungry wasps.
Hope all had a great Thanksgiving...it is cold this morning.
Oh John that is such a good idea...I've been thinking about doing something like that...I can't stand my Monarchs getting eaten by the wasp. Do you have a picture of the whole structure?
I love all the Camellia photos...I just don't seem to have very good luck with them...my mother in law used to have tons of them...hers were in mostly shade. She lived here in Central FL also.
I have some Gerbers coming back up again...
