Very nice pics jim!!! Those banana pics are amazing. I cant believe how big they all got! The thai giant is definitely a giant! And the castor beans look amazing also!! I just got my Hibiscus acetosella 'Red Shield' in the mail today and Im hoping that it looks just like a castor bean, only with hibiscus flowers! (And I think its also not poisonous which is a plus.)
Thanks for sharing! Its hard to believe that everything will be covered in snow and taken in soon!

Thanks guys/gals-

No Gunnera anywhere anymore )-:

The camera really does all the work,you just have to make sure the picture is clear when you click-just a Kodak 8.2 megapixel from Wally-World

That is the legendary Thai giant(Colocasia),bought for $12 from Brains botanicals on E-bay in a 4" pot last spring!

They get seriously big,seriously fast!
