The Heat is On and On and On...

after another week of 100 degree heat, it has cooled to the low 90's. The tropicals seem to be loving it although we need rain badly.

Jack's Giant is about 7' tall now and the new patio and garden orchids are still blooming their heads off.

The Exotic Garden by Will Giles

what a treat! This encyclopedia is the bible for any serious tropical plant/exotic plant collector or grower. Beautifully done, expertly identified plants in the photos.

I also got the opportunity to meet Will himself at his garden open house.
