Starting Over in St Pete

29 posts in this topic

After living in my first house for 15+ years.. it was time to make a move.  

As you can see- I decided to rip out everything and start over.  

I look forward to seeing how things grow and develop over time.   

The new grass and circular driveway are in.

It's time to plant some palm trees......

Either you've been collecting/ accumulating fine specimens for a while, or I want to know where you do your "random palm shopping!!" :drool:

Those are some really exceptional palms there! Already they look so healthy and lush. Plus it looks like you have a sweet yard and house to go along with it. Should be fun to watch them grow over the years. I always loved St. Pete, you made a good choice by moving there. Your off to a phenomenal start, keep it up and your house will soon be palm tree heaven.
