I’m back

Having a great summer here in Missouri despite how hot it’s been.

The GOOD thing about the heat is that Kenny’s more tropical plants are doing brilliantly!

He has a cactus that is in bloom…..

There is a bloom on one of the banana trees…….yes, right here in land-locked Missouri!  The bananas are the little things poking upwards….still pretty small…..they never get big enough or ripe enough to eat, because it just doesn’t stay hot LONG enough here, but it’s always a treat to see them!

Every time I swim in the pool I always feel like I’m in the middle of the jungle…..

There are also hibiscus….

Lots of cactus….

 

Have a great weekend!

  2. Tammy, your property is so beautiful. I'm sure if I lived there I would become a recluse and might never leave the pool area!!

  3. Hey Tammy,
    What a cute picture of you! Lookin' all relaxed by your tropical pool! Those plants are something else! Love the banana one! Little mini bananas! Do you have to keep the tropical plants indoors in the winter?

  5. Sheri, Yes, LET'S!
    Kim, That happens some weekends!
    Cathy, The tropicals come into the sunroom every fall.....and it is jam-packed! The banana trees get dug up, cut back and stored in the garage...it's a lot of work that thankfully "I" don't have to do :)
    Lauren, Thanks!

  10. Very tropical. I would never guess from the pic's that you live in Missouri. Your dear hubby has an extremely green thumb!! Beautiful, and glad you are enjoying your summer despite the temps... I'm sure your pool is getting lots of use!
