Spring Makes a Big-Time Entrance
Today may be the official first day of spring, but, in truth, the season popped out early this year, and in no small way. Plants that have lain dormant during the winter months have begun to push new leaves. We’ve even seeing new weeds which weren’t here during the winter. (Who says there’s no winter in southern Florida? Just because we don’t have snow….) Both the white and blue forms of Queen’s Wreath (Petrea volubilis) have been putting on a spectacular show the last few weeks. On the other hand, vegetable crops are coming to an end, but we still have kohlrabi, celery, Malabar spinach, and Swiss chard. I invite everyone to come down and walk the grounds or ride around in a golf cart and enjoy the springtime show.
