Extremely nice, Jeff. :) I'd have thought some of these very rare palms might have drawn some attention.

Syagrus cearensis - apparently every single seed will produce a double! Very unusual.

And a couple of general views. Montgomery Botanical Center on 120 acres is an absolutely incredible garden! And "garden" is a bit of an understatement! :)

Great pictures, Kim. Thanks for posting. I had a great time. It was very nice meeting you and other palm fanatics from all over the world. A big thank for you and all others who organised this palm event. You did a great job.

I didn’t know the word ‘palmy’, nice word. When I told my friends and colleagues that I spent a week looking at palms in Florida some thought that I had been drinking a lot of beers! The Belgian beer brand Palm is very popular in the Netherlands. We have the expression: 'een Palmpje pakken', which means having a Palm beer.
