My Cassia bush (more like a tree) blooms every October-November. I planted her because she attracts sulphur butterflies. They nectar and larval on cassia.  You do know that specific butterflies nectar or larval on specific plants, right? For instance, Monarchs love Butterfly Bushes but won't go near a cassia. Sulphurs love everything but especially cassias. I wonder if that's why Sulphurs are yellow.We bought this one when we moved to Timber Greens 8 years ago. And, the original plant cost $2.97 in it's 3 quart pot.  It was maybe 4-5 inches high.  Cassie (as we call her) has been cut down many times but always gives us a beautiful show. This is only part of her; she has much more on the right but it was raining and I wanted to catch as much as I could. These are all over the place at An...

Sunset Over The RiverLast night we attended a network meeting that combined 5 Chambers of Commerce at Catches Restaurant in Port Richey, FL. Which, BTW, was a fun and awesome meeting,  lots of people, some we knew and some were new to us. Seeing some of our old friends for the first time in ages was the best part, of course.We left just a moment or two before sunset, I took pictures on the outside deck of Catches but it wasn’t quite dark enough; so we stopped when we saw this breath-takingly beautiful sky on the road running along the Pithlachascotee River in New Port Richey. This photo is not enhanced, those were the real colors.  It was a fun evening and I hope we do it again soon. The beauty of Florida never stops.Toni WeidmanBroker-associateFlorida Luxury Realty727-237-0083 Sunset O...

Shayna Goes Retro With Mr. UnderwoodShayna loves our old Underwood typewriter; she'll sit in front of it and play with the keys. She sits next to it, rests her head on the side and falls asleep. I'm sure John Thomas Underwood never envisioned his typewriters being used as kitty beds but she gets tired of working on the computer and gives the old guy some love.  If you're thinking of buying or selling a home, Shayna would be very happy to assist you. Just call me, I'll give her the message :).  Click Toni to access IDXToni Weidman, GRIBroker-associate 727-237-0083 Thank you for reading: Shayna Goes Retro With Mr. Underwood
