About my garden: Living in Florida's warm climes gives me the added advantage to grow several citrus and avocado trees. In December the nightime air is filled with the wafting aroma of orange blossoms. By the time February arrives the branches are laden down with lemons, tangerines, honey bell oranges and grapefruit. Basically, the only nurturing I give them is some fertilzer in early spring and the sunshine and some rain take care of the rest. The avocados are the Floridian variety which produce a bumper crop in June/July each year. They are tasty and filling. In fact, I try to get rid of them by offering the neighbours second and third rounds, but they turn them down because the amount I give them is adequate for the season. Now, I am wondering if they have taken to hiding when they see me come to their doors with them!
More about me: I live in Naples, in the sub-tropics of southwest Florida, close to the Everglades. This particular balmy climate allows me to display a colourful array of blossoms all year long. Although the summer temps.of daily mid 90'sF are brutal esp. on my roses, but they are in return blessed with a daily rainfall, which brings them all back by autumn. Having such rich Irish blood I find those temperatures to be brutal on myself as well. Sadly, in those dog days of summer, I tend to pay less attention to my garden until autumn. The flowers and myself do survive!
