The pineapple guava is busting out in full bloom. The mocking birds love eating their petals that taste sort of like tuti-fruity. They end up pollinating the flowers while doing this.IMG_0935The Beautiful Amaryllis is still going strong. I love how the red ones , then the pink ones, then the white ones come to bloom in order.IMG_0938The Echinacea are just starting to bloom.  I love their color.
