The world-famous Redland Orchid festival was postponed until 2022. Sigh. I have orchids which I attached to trees and forgot all about until they burst into blooming splendor. "Orchids evolved between 76 and 105 million years ago and they can be found in every corner of the world from tropical rainforests to the Scottish highlands." My phalaenopsis orchids are growing quite nicely here in Lee County:)
~ quoted text from the book "Growing Orchids at Home" by Manos Kanellos & Peter White (available at Lee County Library).

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

The Garden Club of Cape Coral, Lee County Master Gardener Volunteers and Habitat for Humanity thank LCEC for its commitment to sponsor and promote safe gardening practices and Florida Friendly Landscaping. Together, a family in need will achieve its goal of homeownership with a low-maintenance, attractive, Florida Friendly yard while providing a demonstration landscape that will serve as a model for other residents.
LCEC joins Garden Club members and Master Gardeners in reminding homeowners of the law to Call Before You Dig! Homeowners can avoid striking underground utilities by calling 811 or visiting the Florida website https://www.sunshine811.com to access a free utility locating service. It is best to call at least two days before you plan to dig. Electric, water, gas and cable companies will be notified of your plans and will come to your property to locate and mark the lines.For more information read the article in the Cape Coral Breeze
