END OF SUMMER 2015 FORT LAUDERDALE   Leave a comment

Summer 2015 started on June 21 at 12:38 PM and here it is ending on September 23 at 04:21 AM and even though it has been a long time since I was in school it still feels as if the summer ‘vacation’ wasn’t long enough!! Autumn is here and our temperatures will fall down to only a high of 86 degrees!!

In any case I took a few pictures to keep the memories of what I saw and they are now in the slideshow.

1) That is the ever blooming geranium in my apartment and 2) the bromide plant outside one of my neighbor’s apartment.

3) We have hibiscus plants, trees and this hibiscus hedge.

4) As always a lizard along the paths–this is Timmy who ’lives’ by the C elevator.

5 & 6) Rainy ‘season’ finally came to South Florida. We get a slow drizzle and then about an hour of a heavy downpour. You learn to get things done before 2 PM when it will start.

7) Along with Timmy the lizard every year we get visited by a bird who spends the summer on top of our building–he will be flying off soon.

8) Almost didn’t see this one!

9) This is a pepper plant that I started to grow from seeds of a green pepper I bought at the Farmer’s Market!

10)  Plants right outside my door on the walkway–they may ‘disappear’ soon as we have new owners of the complex and they have rules for everything including rules! I’ll write about them some day!

11) A new Queen Crepe Myrtle branch growing at the bottom of its trunk.

12 & 13) Walking along the canal to Karen Bay–always changing.

14) A plant on the side street in full bloom.

15) Another sign that summer is over–every Saturday our Resident Association got bagels from Einstein Brothers and we would get them free–every kind of bagel you could think of and some you never heard of or tried!

16) And at the end of the Summer of 2015 this Gateway ‘critter’ is thriving!!
