Production, southeastern style . . .



After a panic-inducing dry spell, the orange Hibiscus went nuts when it rained a bit. These are various views taken this afternoon. There were even more flowers than are visible in these shots. Yes, the Hibiscus are over-grown. They are supposed to be cut back in January and as this is late December, we might do it. We have yet to remove the Alligator Loppers from the box and charge the battery. No sense rushing these things . . .

We have croton and hibiscus in No Central Fla. After first frost, they usually turn black and need to be replaced. Really, I don't know why folks even make the effort. Camellias and Dogwood simply thrive in this area and are so lovely. Plus, Dogwood has a color change when the frost comes. Yellow, yellower, gold. Gone!
