Under The Jakfruit Tree
Here at Richard Lyons Nursery we are at the beginning of the dry season. The weeds are different from the wet season and the dry season fruits are nearing harvest. We have already picked some jujube and sapodilla. Many more are on the way. All the fresh fruit and fruit trees are available for purchase six days a week. We are closed only on Thursdays.
The Brazilian Red Cloak is stunning with its one foot plus plumes of red flowers.
Winter vegetables are growing in the surrounding farms. The humidity is lower and the night temperatures are mostly in the 70s. I saw my first hummingbird of the season sipping nectar from the red firespike plant. More will be here shortly for our winter/dry season. If you plant the right nectar plants, they will come to your yard too.
