Look Who’s Watching Me In My Garden

This hawk flew right over my head and landed in the tree. He sat and watched me for at least ten minutes. Of course, I was watching him too. I just happen to be photographing the wonderful things that are happening in the garden as we get closer to fall.

Here in Central Florida, we wait for fall like I’m sure people in colder climates wait for spring and summer. We plant tomatoes, swiss chard, mustard greens, and flowers at this time of year. Plants that have languished in the garden during the heat of the summer have perked up, are blooming again and setting fruit. Here’s a picture of our eggplants that haven’t bloomed since June. 

Little baby eggplant all over the place.

Lantana bursting into bloom.

We sow Swiss Chard like leaf lettuce and will use the leaves in salads.

Wish I knew if these were edible…you just don’t take a chances on mushrooms if you don’t know the variety. I sending the photo to our newspaper’s Gardening Editor to see what he thinks. So not to end with a question…

you are looking at an avocado tree espaliered on the brick wall…keeping company with collards (small plants on the left) eggplant, okra and basil and of course the vinca blooming at the bottom. Yes, I know… too close together but we are very successful planting this way. I want the garden to produce and be beautiful at the same time.

I hope you enjoyed this little trip through the garden.
