Coleus Love The Rain

My grandmother would be so proud of me.
She loved Coleus plants and I, adoring her,
wanted to walk in her footsteps.  She was
a gardener.  
Both her vegetable and flower gardens
thrived....a green thumb?  I think not.
  It was all
the hard work in caring for them that caused them
to grow and produce.
  Grandmother would wonder today
at how my Coleus are growing to such 
extraordinary size,
and I would tell her that I planted them in good 
Miracle Gro soil and watered them daily. 
 That is,
until the rainy season came to Florida and then
nature took care of them.

She would also wonder and be amazed that I could
send photos of my 
beautiful Coleus, via the Internet.....
for the whole world to see.

The Crape Myrtles are blooming now, as well and the blending
of colors are really quite remarkable.

Enjoying these very warm days of summer...how bout' you?  Dee Dee
