Spring is here!



The arrival of spring has got me all excited about garden projects.  I've written about some of those DIY projects in my gardening blog, Subtropical Gardening.

Awesome Container Gardening Idea


Check out the bird cage that was turned into a plant container from the Empress of Dirt!  Click here to go to an excellent article on other ideas for unusual plantings.

The front fence is in the process of going up and will be embellished with a row of beautiful and colorful bougainvillea.  Finally . . . privacy and no trespassers!

Welcome March!





The arrival of March inspires thoughts of Spring in Florida.  The landscape is still green since we have had no freezing temps this year and daytime temps have been in the 70's and 80's, so it has been feeling like Spring just about all winter.  This is what I love most about living in Florida!

After all these years of being hassled by people trying to sell something knocking on our door, we are finally getting a front fence with a gate to keep solicitors out.  The Captain and I live a serious bohemian lifestyle of sleeping when we feel like it and many times it is during the day.  It is so irritating to awaken by a loud knock on the door or the door bell that is way too loud.

I'm currently working on the website and planning many new pages and sections.  The Home and Garden page is what I'm working on now.
