Beauty thru my Lens: Bird of Paradise

Strelitzia – Bird of Paradise

I feel like I am in a whole other world. I have spent a lifetime learning the plants that would grow in the colder climate of Michigan, and even learned those that were exceptions given the unique micro-climate of my gardens. Now I am having to start over because so many plants here in Florida are “foreign” to me. Today I found a book that will help, published by Southern Living – a big book of over 700 pages of plants that grow in the southern regions. What I am learning is that almost anything that grows anywhere will grow here – especially if giving a little extra treatment. Spring bulbs need to be dug up and placed in the frig each year.
