Hey all, long time no post. Been busy since spring with many projects and until this recent vacation, don't get on the computer long enough to post. I haven't posted since spring so I have a few old pics to post. I didn't actually take a lot of pics this year.

Here's me with my banana from Sept.

Beautiful!

Glad your waterline wasn't under your plants!

My Y.gloriosa flowered this year and put out
quite a few babies.....hopefully it will throw
out a branch or two and not lose it's size.

That Abyssinian is going to be a monster next year!

Jim, the Abyssinian should be great if I can save it. Last year the entire trunk rotted in storage, I didn't know if it would come back but just stuck it in the ground and hoped. Well, it came back. I had stored it exactly the same way as I had 2 years ago, which is bare root. I'm trying it in a pot this winter with minimal light and water. Hopefully I can keep all the trunk. It's still throwing out big leaves but it's hurting for light, and it's so big I have no place to keep it where it would get any more light. Actually that just sparked an idea. My master bathroom faces south....... but no the wife will probably not allow it. Or would she?
