As always Jim everything looks amazing.

How tall is that Washy? Do you still have the other one or did it pass?

Your Louisianas look like they put on some great growth for you this past year.

Luckily we haven't had a real frost yet, but my bananas are all wind tattered anyway.

BTW...Your cactus garden looks great.

Thanks Laura

I just wish I could capture more of the magic in pics..
so much fun to watch these out of place plants grow!

Thanks Ryan

I think we have about 10 days before the tropical ending cold hits
(looks like next weekend)but it has to end some time....
thats o.k. though,I have a nice
group of cactus and palms to keep me company fall/winter!

Washy

Ryan

The other Washy was planted to high,I let them see low 20s last fall and I think
this damaged the root structure next to the trunk...it was also under a leaky gutter which did not help.

It was not able to recover from the damage.
