Current garden status:
For the first time since I've lived here, my magnolia is in bloom!
The trees by my lanai are in bloom as well. Now that I have these blooms to help me identify them, I think that I am now comfortable identifying these as Shady Lady olive trees.
The lubbers are infesting the yard-- both big and small lubbers.
So far they haven't been destroying my vegetable plants, but they have been eating the sheffelera. That's alright by me.
My gardenia is in bloom now...
I do nothing to this thing, but it seems to love it's location. I fear it won't do so well after we cut down the ficus, which currently provides it with shade.
The rubber vine is in full bloom right now.
I love this shot that Woodrow got of the rubber vine.
