My favorite tree ever! THE ROYAL POINCIANA.

This masterpiece of god is truly ROYAL, with her light spreading branches that seam to want to hug you. OMG and those beautiful flowers that just take over the whole tree. She is related to the Tamarind and mimosa tree and she is a native of Madagascar. In South Florida you can find them every where.

They line the streets.

This one is from my neighbor in the back.

This one is from my neighbor in front of my house.

This one is from down the street.

Yes, this one is mine. One or two lonely blooms. There is always next year.

I've been neglecting my garden blog.

I've been MIA here at my garden blog, cause I've been blogging about my scrapbooking. But, I've been working in my garden, well is sooooo hot that I do most of my garden work late afternoon. I've haven't done much planting cause is not a good time in the middle of this hot summer. I've mainly been cleaning and fertilizing. My water pump just gave out on me and I have to replace it soon or I'm going to be sorry when I get my next water bill.

These cuties are from my miniature rose bush, it's blooming like crazy and I display them every chance I get.

I finally got to paint this little set, it was originally white but, now it matches the little shelves in the background.

My stag horn is growing so much, it must be cause she is so happy there. I think I finally got the lighting right.

This is my second time getting coconuts, now if I could only open them. I'm afraid of the machete.
