Well, October is a wonderful time here in the part of Florida that I live in. Like Spring, everything seems to bloom before it freezes in the winter. My yellow cassia trees are a sight. I love them so much that I rooted them so I have tons around the perimeter of my home and I even shared with the neighbors so we all can bask in the display of color. I also have some papaya growing though I wish I had thrown the seeds in a more sunny area. Fuchsia mallow from seeds obtained in Puerto Rico , buttercups and finally the bougainvillea bloomed. This is my favorite time of year here.
