Thank you very much, Jeff. :) Knowing your own garden is nothing short of spectacular, that's quite a compliment from you, thank you!

I have to add this photo Bo sent me of the Lemuophoenix spear opening -- so exciting!

Hi Kim, Your garden looks great and I love the color the bromeliads give the green areas. I also liked the overall site concept. What is the size of your land? If I may confess, I chuckled at first when I saw the green unplanted areas...I can't imagine any palmtalk member willing to keep so much green and not filling the space with a palm or two hundred! Good Luck. Peter

Hi Peter, my plot is one acre, long and skinny -- 100 ft. wide. by 435 ft. deep. The site concept shows the jungle areas as green texture, and over time I expect to push paths into the various sections and plant more palms. Some of the jungle areas have already been developed, such as the north side of the driveway near the street where I just put in the Loxococcos, and areas toward the back, such as where the Satakentias went in. I do like having a few open areas, just my taste, and I don't plant up against the house. So far about 165 palms are in the ground, and plenty of room for more, no worries! :)

Awesome photo of your Lemurophoenix, Daryl! :drool: I believe you have proved Tim to be correct; mine is a wimpy little thing! :lol:

Rafael, thanks, and glad you are enjoying the photos during your recuperation. :) The social aspect of Hawaii has turned out to be much more than I ever expected. It is the island way of life to be welcoming and friendly.

Craig, I agree, the Lemurs are such fascinating palms at any stage, and always a thrill to see the size of the next frond. Good luck with yours! :)

In between all this planting action, just to break up the day, a new path was begun toward the back where the Satakentia and Orania were planted.

Using a stick to check the width....... A pretty good start!



The whole time I was there I was hoping to see this Lemurophoenix spear open:



This photo gives you an idea of the size. It never did open while I was there, but I hear it's finally cracking open now.



I did enjoy seeing the spear of one of the smaller Lemurs open:



I can't help myself, I keep revisiting this thread. The Lemurphoenix keeps torturing me :crying:
