Gratitude - Day 6 - My Back Yard

Mexican Sunflower (and spider web)
Morning Glories are my favorite

My husband is a wonderful gardener, and for that, I am very grateful.  I call him Mr. Green Jeans**, and you have to as old as I am to know what that means.  He has a green thumb, whereas I have a black one.  Our attempts at vegetable growing have been great adventures and a source of many laughs.  Those stories are for another day, however.  Today I will share the variety of plants my husband has coaxed from our sandy Florida soil.  I hope you enjoy the beauty of my back yard as much as I do.

This is the flower of an Elephant Ear plant

Mr. Green Jeans with  the Elephant ear plant - huge leaves

Hibiscus bloom almost all year round

Not sure what this is, but we have many of them around our patio

**Mr. Green Jeans was the side kick farmer on the Captain Kangaroo Show, back in the 1950's.  Now you know how old I am, right?  Do you remember that show?
