    Default Our Gardens

    You asked for it. Here are a few pictures of our gardens, the yard was bare except for a few large trees and palms when we bought the house. These gardens are 2 years old, most of the plants were started from small nursery stock or cuttings. With all of the rain this summer everything is looking quite lush but nothing much is in bloom.

    It's just beautiful Cin! So lush and manicured. You certainly have a green thumb (I imagine living in FL helps a bit!). What's the water behind you--a pond, a canal?

    LOL - Reindeer in Florida! Nice touch of irony, Cin!

    Lovely landscaping! It's well thought out. Not simply the typical house border and requisite palm out front.

    The only change I would make to it Cin... is a piece of schomburgkia mounted onto the palm tree. I can always help you out with that if want! Let me know

    Sounds good! I can make it over probably on Wed if you want to pm me your address. That big tibicinis that I just mounted was actually two plants, so I can just take one of them and slap it up there for you.

    You just don't let the kitty cats out at night!

    They wouldn't like the fire ants either.

    Aaron and Cin - we want pictures of the palmed Schomb...or Laelia...or whatever the hell it is!
