Love those wildlife shots! That gulf fritillary on the blanketflower is a beautiful capture! That Florida sun is wicked hot right now, isn't it?

I do love your garden and your garden photos. Thanks!

Erin said...

Lovely peppers! I was just about to ask what type that was on the blanketflower but it looks like Floridagirl answered it for me!

Dani said...

FloridaG, it is wicked! I was sweatin' my little booty off this morning just pulling weeds! Ugh.

ThreeC, it could use some of your rain. :)

Erin, my sweet girlfriend Connie stopped by earlier with a few dozen G.F caterpillars that she pulled off her maypop.

I love gifts like that!

Darla said...

Just beautiful! I would go ahead and plant some celosia if I were you....

Kelly said...

Yum, yum! And as always, gorgeous critter photog.

It is nice when Florida produce starts to appear in abundance.

Big Shamu said...

BLACKBERRIES!!!! My first two plants are in the ground. Might even get some berries later this summer.
Those are some mighty impressive peppers.

Susan said...

You are very talented at taking photos...great shots! Your garden looks like it's holding up well in the summer heatwave. Hope you're getting some rain.

Can I grow black berries in St. Pete????????

Making Space said...

Beautiful!!!!!!

Dani said...

Thanks Darla for the info. :)

Kelly, I still have homemade strawberry ice cream on the brain! YUMMY.

TBF, I'm afraid we're hitting the slow down point now.

Shamy, you go gardening girl! xoxo

Susan, we haven't gotten a drop. Seems like it's falling everywhere else except my house!

SPP, there is a nursery on Central Ave (I think it's called Jeannes Tropicals?). She has a great selection of plants that will grow in our climate.

MS, thanks girlfriend!

Gorgeous butterfly photo! Good luck with the weather - it's been sweltering here too.

Glad to see the bees are out in full force. Here, too, including those great lumbering C-130 bumblebees. How on earth do those things get off the ground?

The vegetables are beautiful. Tell Elizabeth I have been picking rasberries here in the hollow. I want a garden now!

Sandcastle Momma said...

Those berries look SO good. I put in blackberry bushes this year but I probably won't get anything from them until next year.
Love the bee shot!

Granny Annie said...

Walking by your garden, I'm afraid it would be awfully tempting to grab that full basket and run.

LaDivaCucina said...

Oh man, oh man, oh man! I like the way those chiles are looking! What kind are they? And watcha gonna do with them? Fresh salsa?

Can you even grow celosia down here? I think they like shade....did well in California when i grew it.

Glad your chooks are lookin' better and feeling better too. Whew, that was a close one!
