The Merrick House is Ready for Halloween

It seems a bit strange to see autumn down the street. Very few of our plants hibernate. Our gardens are still full of flowers. If shedding leaves make it autumn for you, come to south Florida in January to March when most of our trees are losing their leaves. For the nit picker we do have some trees that shed in winter.

So eight random facts about myself:

1. I delivered the newspaper longer then any one in this area. I peddled my bike 5 miles a day. And it was all up hill.
2. The money that I earned from the paper route was used to buy Orchids. I have grown them for over 60 years.

4. I was the oldest student in my computer class.
5. I have 1 site and 2 blogs.
6. I give away free the most expensive banana trees in the world. You can see the page My Ae Ae's Brother at my site
