What a amazing post!!!!!!!! That is definitely one of the most beautiful garden's and pictures ever posted on PT. The intense colors: raspberry house!!!!! and the enormous variety of colorful plants took my breath away; But I was also 'blown away' by the pictures of the city, peacock, cockatiel, love birds. the frog on the water lily and your adorable dog.

OK, the palms are also spectacular......Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

My husband and I are putting Croatia and your garden on our 'MUST SEE'.

i got that fox when hunters kill their mother, it is one of the best pet i ever had, so clever and sweet animal!

every year people bring me some small or injured animal to help or raise and return to nature, just now got two falcons that drop out of the nest...

Here is few pics of the garden now, just so that you can understand how difficult was this last winter i put this first picture from the end of march, all my bigger syagrus looked like this one, we got down to 24F with wind from 150-200km/h.

Ah ok, looked like a Sabal to me because of the costapalmat leaves. Your younger Bismarckia looks very healthy!

first time after 4 years it start witth this normal bismarckia like leaves and bigger than leaves before, my clime is very difficult for them, lucky we got hot summers, but there is to long cold wet period from, december till march, it is 4 years in ground but it is still just an experiment when you see i am at 43° 31 north, i think it is the most northern bismarckia in the world planted outside in garden :)

Ante,

I always admire so much those who grow the tropicals in Europe, fighting against wind, snow, drought, frizzing cold and other hazards .
I feel lazy growing my palms in the srilankan climate where Caryota seeds itself anywhere on the ground and where we never have to water;

Most important work: weeding otherwise jungle is back.

BRAVO :)
