However, the plants in my garden seem really be enjoying this Florida sun. I am especially drawn into all those white flowers dotted in the garden. I love the white flowers for their pureness, simplicity, and the elegance.
This Gardenia is the spring bloomer. Although it also blooms occasionally throughout the year, spring is its peak time. I found this variety seems hardly fully opens before it fades away, although this doesn't impact it releases the heavenly scent. Currently the bush has about 8 flowers open, and has more than a couple of dozen buds on the way. I found myself is making the frequent trips around it so that I can smell its lovely scent as much as I can.

This Crape Jasmine is really thriving in the heat. In one short week, this bush is full covered by the blooms.

My first caladium leaf! This is my first time to plant the caladium bulbs. Bought one package with 24 mixed caladium bulbs. I have no idea what types I actually got. I am glad this first one emerged is a pretty one, White Christmas in Florida Summer. How cool is that!

All these snow whites are really bringing me some coolness under the Florida sun.
What white bloomings do you have now in your garden?
