Welcome to our May Garden Party and thank you for joining us today! We loved your April gardens and we can’t wait to see what you are growing in your May gardens. My goodness what a difference a month makes in nearly everyone’s gardens except if you live in the tropics. In the tropics gardening is year around and 24/7. In fact it almost seems as though the plants grow overnight! Today I am sharing some highlights of the gardens I visited in Puerto Rico.
With average temperatures in the mid to high 80’s and plenty of sunshine, I was treated to an assortment of blooms everywhere we went. Whether I strolled among water gardens in a courtyard or enjoyed smiling grandchildren giggling among the blossoms in my daughter’s gardens.
The brilliant colors and massive size blooms always left me in awe of Mother Natures breathtaking handiwork. Bougainvillea’s are everywhere and on this particular occasion they were cascading along a beach fence line.

When my daughter and I saw this giant Fiddle Leaf Fig in a local Garden center we gasped with joy and wonderment. If only ours would grown this big!
