Life in the tropics

This morning for the first time this "fall" I put on a light jacket to take the dog for a walk. But then I came home to harvest these:

Meyer Lemons in front of Jasmine
These still have some time before they ripen:

The fig is a little out of focus, but I love the leaf.

And our approx. 7 foot x 7 foot Hibiscus is in full bloom and laced through with Plumbago.

This is a winter I could get used my friends up North head inside I'm on my way out the door after a summer hiding from blistering heat. It all feels so very backwards, but right now I'm loving it.

oh, yum!

For some reason my feed wasn't working for your site for such a long time, but then I clicked over from LBK's post and saw that hey! You're posting. Dangit.

So I look forward to hearing about your work adventures. It sounds like an awesome opportunity.

Not to be creepy, but those lemons look like boobs.

The fact that it's always growing season here is Houston's one saving grace.

I tried growing Meyer lemons in a pot but wasn't successful. My latest ambition is to grow strawberries.
