I went out to check the bird feeder early this morning and was rewarded by a visit from a couple of my garden residents.
This river cooter is a regular because I’m lucky to have a nice natural bog and pond in the woods behind my house and although it’s a turtle “Disneyland” back there they do enjoy getting out and about and catching some sun. This gal is about football sized as a point of reference.
One of the hundreds, yes hundreds of lizards in my yard. This one normally hangs out on the fence but almost always catches the first rays of sun on these rocks.
The dogwood is finally getting its leaves – it’s always a late “bloomer” but this year it was particularly slow. This one was started from a tiny tiny seedling sent to me by the Arbor Day Foundation – it’s taken about 8 years just to get to be about 5 feet tall and has yet to bloom.
Portulaca – aka “moss rose”

Have a beautiful day y’all! – Chris

Here’s a poinsettia that we’ve had in our window garden for about 2 years now and this is the earliest it has ever bloomed. We say early because it should bloom late spring to mid fall here in Florida. The variety is “Red Glitter”.
We’ve done nothing special with the plant – no hiding it away in a closet. It sits in full sunlight in a northwest facing window. What a pretty plant!
