Hello my fellow Floridians (and those who strive to call themselves Floridians!)
We've now officially entered the Summer months and, here in Florida, that means the sun is bright and the temps are high.
I was inspired to write this post by a simple, glorious flowering plant I found at Home Depot. I can kill anything inside of a week, but I bought several of these and they've managed to thrive. It's drought tolerant, low maintenance, and can take a full day of sun. It comes in red, white, and a range of pinks, from light to dark, and seems impervious to whatever conditions are thrown at it. It might go into a shock for a week or so when transplanted, but will then return to beautiful and robust flowering. The Rio Diplandia looks lovely as a potted plant, hanging plant, or planted directly in the soil. I've also learned that it comes in a climbing variant called Mandevilla
Even if you don't live in Florida this beautiful flower can be enjoyed when the proper cold weather precautions are taken. Imagine the color it will bring to your entryway as a hanging plant, to your walkway as a trellis covering, or as a potted garden on the balcony of your condo.
Speaking of gardening, don't forget to care for your lawn. It's the largest part of the garden! Here's a terrific calendar for the care and maintenance of Northeast Florida lawns and gardens. It's dated 2013 yet it's the best I've seen.
Your lawn and garden are an extension of your home and the first sign of "Welcome" your friends and family will see when visiting. Make it a warm, terrific welcome!

"Eric was great to work with! He is extremely knowledgeable and was such a pleasure to work with. He made the process easy and straightforward. I feel like he truly worked hard to help me get the deal I was most happy with.
Both myself and my fiancé have both purchased homes through Eric and are more than pleased with his work. We will be partnering with him on more purchases in the future, for sure!"
