Spring comes to Florida

Here's a little Florida Sunshine for everyone stuck in another snow storm.  Spring is coming to Florida.  You can see new growth on some plants, and flowering trees are starting to bloom.  These photos were taken at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach last week.

Yellow Tabebuia

Also called the trumpet tree -  bursts into bloom.

It blooms before it leafs out.

Peach Tree - you don't usually see these in Florida

BeautyBerry  (Callicarpa americana) - a Florida native with the most beautiful berries.
