One of the most common sights during Summertime in gardens everywhere, including mine, right now is the flowering Delonix regia - the Poinciana. Nothing says 'Summer' in the northern tropics quite like the splendid display of the Poinciana.
Another common Summertime sight is the Cassia fistula, or Golden Shower Tree, in full bloom. This is mine ... visible behind the Courtyard Garden beds.
It's holiday time for me now ... the school year is over and time to relax! Unfortunately it's not a time when I can spend hours in the garden ... far too hot and sticky!!! We've had the air-conditioning on for the first time since the end of last Summer so instead of whiling away the summer hours in the garden, I can now catch up with all those blogs I've been too busy to visit over the last few weeks.
Hopefully, the work I've put in over the last few weekends preparing the garden for the onslaught of our summer will be enough to get all my beloved plants through the trials and tribulations of the next couple of months. Fingers crossed! At least I know my little selection of Bromeliads, Costus and Curcumas will get through ... they love this time of year.
