Not that many plants bloom in August in Tallahassee, but the wet summer has helped strengthen the lawn and kept it a deep shade of green.
My wife and I worked on the camellia and agapanthus beds on the south-facing side of our home this past weekend. Got some help from the visiting sister-in-law and another "local"....
This weekend the weather pattern finally changed in Tallahassee. I took the opportunity to start a bit of "spring cleaning" out in the garden.
Transplanted a large camellia that was in a weird spot last year and planted two more. All thriving and putting on quite a show this year.
One of the things we are enjoying about living in Tallahassee is the variety of things that grow across the seasons. Even though south Florida was warmer, the choices were more one note.
We have a couple of Tea Olive bishes that looked pretty ragged when we bought the house in 2018. Trimmed and fertilized and they both came back pretty nicely.
Finally got the camellia bed on the south side of our home weeded and mulched. Just in time for the first blooms of the fall season!
