A light rain but not much more
Today is Saturday July 7, 2012. We had a light rain sprinkle for a minute or two this morning, which was enough to wet down the dust. Not enough to provide a good drink for the plants and trees. I toured the nursery and grove this morning and found many wonderful blooms. We have uploaded photos of some of the plants taken today. Those mentioned photos which are not shown here can be found in the Plant Gallery at our old website www.rarefloweringtrees.com, the companion site to this site.
Velvet apple, red shrimp, mamey, Clerodendrum minahassae, various crepe myrtles, Cassia afrofistula, sweet almond, Chinese rain bells, an orange costus, angel wing begonia, dune sun flower, porterweed, white, red and yellow plumerias, Brazilian red cloak, star potato, akee, strawberry tree, sapodilla, Spanish lime, Brachychiton acerifolius, Chinese fringe plant, Clerodendrum paniculata, white costus, Barbados cherry. Too many more blooming and fruiting plants to mention here; this will be continued next week.
