Great camera work Vince! Poor guy was flipping out with sensery overload,(reminds me of me) trying to keep names straight and all! I think its great to see young people getting excited about the prospect of someday having their own garden and maybe lend a little influence :) Someone somwhere once said "Palms may grow slow but time goes by fast". But then again many palms grow darn fast. Some of the reasons for my good growing are good native soil (rocky loam) lots of mulch Including chopped up plant materials from the garden, mostly organic ferts, lots of water (downslope from a heavily watered golf course) and perhaps one of the most mild climates in the world.

Thanks for all the kind words from everyone! :)

I never get tired of seeing Pogos masterpiece San Clemente garden. It's like a cheap trip to New Caledonia..

That's one of the funniest one-liners I ever heard on this forum. It is a garden of Eden, alright. Thanks for posting, Vince - and for the curry recipes!

Ahh, nice to see the white work truck still in place. :) has it been moved since my visit 1 1/2 years ago? lol! The yard is looking great, just as I remembered. Size for size, it's one of the nicest gardens in Socal, IMO. Thanks for the pictures.....

Jeff

Hey Jeff, the trucks only been out a couple times a week lately with our crummy economy, I think we may rent the extra bedroom to palm junkeys on vacation for some extra dough. I can take you surfing, golfing, palm seeking or just hanging-out with the orangutang and drinking Stienlagers :lol:

Another view with some cool plants.

What are those silvery rosette plants? They look so special. Is it some kind of Dudleya?

Thanks for the palm photos in the backyard. I saw the front yard during a drive-by in March when I was visiting SoCal. The back yard is even more spectacular! Great job Pogobob!

Here is the largest Dypsis baronii I've come across :drool:

pOGObob-bkyrd-dbaoroni2.jpg

pOGObob-bkyrd-dbaoroni1.jpg

At it's base is a Dypsis heteromorpha.

pOGObob-bkyrd-dheteromorpha.jpg

This baronii has the ability to show different colors almost every time it sheds a leaf, as you can see the current "mood" is vanilla white. Sometimes it is sunset orange, sometimes poundcake yellow, and sometimes bright lime green. I wonder what causes these changes? :huh:

Next time I'm in your hood, I'll catch a ride over. Not really into the surfing or golfing, but talking palm smack w/ a cold brandy slushie, or a cold anything will do. :)

Beautiful yard...........inspirational :rolleyes: and yet depressing :unsure: at the same time (because my yard doesn't come close to that). Thanks for the inspirational depression. :blink:

This yard is an example for times like these, planting and dreaming times. I am following and creating my palm dream!

By the way, how about some update pictures of this Bob's heaven?

Thanks for the bump. While working on my garden I always remember those round rock borders in Bob's

and the flow of the turf to highlight the plantings. Twenty plus years of palm growth would be helpful as well.

Cool C.macrocarpa watermelon trunk!

Very Nice layout and a nice selection of palms too...Do you just leave your cuttings under the palms for mulch? I'm always afraid of bugs eating my tender palms...

This is the best foto of the syagrus abreojos i take when i visit Bob in september of the last year.

Bob also give to me seeds of this palm to establish again in Baja California (thank you Bob). His palm is from seeds of one palm they find here in Abreojos in 1974, and this palm is now gone.

When i travel for the work in diferent parts of the peninsula i always look at the syagrus to see if i can find one like this palm of Bob. I never find one.

Never ceases to amaze me the difference between a SoCal garden of palms and a SoFla garden of palms. How attractive with species we can only dream about growing here in Southeast Florida. Bravo for a life's work of palm collecting. Great tour, thank you. :lol:
