Tropical landscapes

Category: Sharing Garden photos | Posted: Tue Dec 01, 2009 10:07 pm

We just returned from visiting our daughter in Tampa, FL. The townhome complex she lives in is beautifully maintained by a landscape service. I enjoyed seeing all the tropical plants and palm trees on our morning walks knowing I would soon be returning to the barren landscape of my TN garden.

Gail, I knew there was something I missed about living in FL. Take heart, the winter in TN is not as long as MN, MI or MT. Nor is it as cold.

Great pictures.

Your unknown plant resembles Ixora:

It comes in many shades of yellow, red, orange, and peach.

I love all of your pictures.

It is fun to see the warmer climates when mine turns chilly. Kind of like taking a mini vacation without the hassel of packing :) Thanks

I needed that little pick me up after spending the morning mulching in my brown and barren yard.... How many days until Spring?
