Today we removed the shrub and put in this heliconia, or false bird of paradise, surrounded by bark mulch and some spider plants and a lone orange geranium. I should have taken a before photo but sadly I neglected that small detail. What a difference a small change makes at our home's entry. A spot of color adds so much to enhance our good feelings as we enter and exit our home.
lovebugs resting on the flower. It's lovebug season here in Florida; not The Love Bug either. There are two lovebug seasons here, one in Spring and one in Fall, which isn't so lucky. Lovebugs are flying and floating everywhere in the air. If we walk outside they fly into our face and hair. If we drive they cover the front of our car. If they aren't removed immediately, they can take the paint right off. A light spray of cooking oil or a coat of wax before driving helps tremendously in that regard. Thanks for reading and for all your comments
