As a Florida (Tampa) native, Landscape Designer and general lover of the outdoors, I love this time of year. The flowering trees are exquisite. The purple and yellow Tabebuia, Eastern Red Bud and Dogwoods are putting on an amazing show of color. As I drive in old Seminole Heights, I am showered by purple rain of a huge Tabebuia that must have been here for years. I love using these flowering trees in my landscape designs. As winter leaves and spring arrives, these trees are an amazing representation of whats to come.
