Flowers:

The area offers many places to see the beautiful wild flowers and my favorite orchids. Don't forget the water plants which are unique!

The wildflowers begin with Spring and many are in bloom well into the fall. Orchid are produced in Southern Florida and shown in many of the horticultural gardens

Herbs are easily grown in a sunny window or in container gardens outside. I keep a selection of my herbs in the screened-in enclosure { lanai } so the bug threat is minimal
