Growing In The Neighborhood
Here are some of the random plants in our neighborhood, shown in the order that we saw them. Above, lichee! If you have never eaten this delectable fruit and have the opportunity, do give it a try. They're ready to eat when they're bright red - delicious!
Citrus fruits grow well here and are very common - grapefruit, tangerines, oranges, lemons and limes grow all year.
These melons grow wild, especially down by the railroad tracks.
These are pyracantha berries - loved by birds and excellent for Christmas wreaths and garlands.
These splendid purple flowers were draped and tumbling over a wooden fence.
Tomorrow, a look at some of the typical beach type houses. My daughter is posting pictures she took on this same walk, over on her blog, 32 Degrees North.
