Spring in Tampa is BRIEF and soon speeds into summer
My nasturtiums are fast declining and setting seeds, but my Shirley Poppies are now blooming. After that mild winter I not only have surviving Blue Pea Vines (Clitoria terneata) but they are leafed out and blooming! Self sown seeds of the cow pea ancestor Vigna unguiculata and cannabis look-alike Lemon Hibiscus (Hibiscus radiata) are popping up like crazy in my south and west beds big time a month early. "Universe....may I PLEASE have a SOGGY WET summer in south Tampa, pretty please?".
