Welcome to May 2022



April went out and May came in with https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fans-flock-to-the-beach-for-the-10th-annual-fort-lauderdale-air-show/ar-AAWMZud?ocid=BingNewsSearch&cvid=c5b32588274b4d1f96af14f80c79d94a but I have a feeling it was cut back because a) I didn't hear the continuous barrage of noise over our buildings and b) there was on and off rain though none really that heavy.

#2 pictures--I walked around Gateway along the canals and down to The Point and even though it was Spring since we had mainly temperatures in the 80s since February it was like a summer day--the grounds were wet but not a drop of rain all afternoon and the sunny was out and bright!

#3 pictures--Spring or not the plant on my kitchen ledge consisting of the yellow Cuban flowers and the pink Geraniums were blooming! All from little snips of older plants and just stuck in a pot of dirt and left alone to do their thing!

#4 pictures--talking of blooming and Spring my 5 pots of pepper plants started showing flowers towards the end of April and on the first of May I had a few peppers to use in my dinner tonight. I don't know why out of 15-20 blooms I only get about 6-7 peppers and they are very small (but enough to flavor a recipe!) I suppose I should cut them back, have less branches and the results would be better and bigger but I love seeing the blossoms and since each plant seems to rotate in producing peppers I am not really complaining!

Do I really have to explain the two unnumbered pictures? I didn't think so!

Here's to May 2022 on the way to summer.

I have a new resolve to grow some garden vegetables this year - am setting up a planter/raised bed in where I hope it will get more sun. Peppers, tomatoes, zucchini.
