Along with much of the eastern United States, central Florida has set record high temperatures lately. While we don’t want cold weather, some cooler temps would be appreciated. The local weather guy says it will cool down to normal temps of high 60s and low 70s this weekend, and that soon, we should see some cold weather. So I thought I would share some of the local beauty before Jack Frost hits, such as these azaleas, courtesy of our weird weather:
These hibiscus seem to think it’s still summer:
Even my impatiens haven’t missed a beat:
Day lilies are blooming right along:
Even the petunias will bloom all winter, assuming no hard freeze comes our way as it did last winter.
There are other flowers, vines, and shrubs blooming, such as firecracker plant, mandevilla, bougainvillea, and lobelia. We are looking forward to some sweater weather, but not coat, hat, & glove weather. Wish us luck, and Happy New Year!
