Brahea brandegeei: for some reason, it needed a break from full sun and a few downpours to recover.  You can see a few dead leaflets from before it was able to acclimate and grow.

Washintonia filifera 'Moapa Valley': 1 year from seed - planted in an elevated "bowl" filled with stone - showing its first palmate leaf and starting its classic filaments

An update to the front yard, complete with Roystonea regia seedlings and an area to keep the trash and recycle bins out of the driveway.

Prepping the area in front for the trashcan pad:

Desodding completed + irrigation areas marked:

Had to straighten the borders, but with all of the plants in, you get the idea:

Caught a good deal on stone edgers, so I decided to rework an old garden bed.

Got 57 of these for $25:

Here is the desert side of the bed with lava rock:

Here is the whole bed:

Here is a skinny walking path I'm still working on:

      Is anyone able to identify the variety of this coconut palm?  The nursery owner is not sure of the variety and unfortunately, he's doesn't seem interested enough to go ask his supplier. (I am hoping for them to be a Panama Tall).
       
       
      Thanks!

      Walked the kids halfway to their bus stop and took a walk to our local beach. Decided to wander north for an hour and saw a few new things (and some beatific rainbow lorikeets).

      There's several more days of rain expected .  I've had about 5.6" here since last Friday , including one burst of 3.2" in a little over one hour .
        That caused some localized flooding here in Holly Hill .
      During that one , some water got into the garage , which unfortunately sits below the elevation of the house and driveway .
        You may need to  right click the video , to make it run .

      Here's a video of some palms under the large live oak hanging over much of my yard . I call her  " Big Bertha " .
       Those branches up there are each around 42" or more in diameter . A nice breezy day , with the Spanish Moss swaying .

      They say you should never look back, but I couldn’t help myself. Google finally updated its street view images. Last year, the images showed the two US homes we once owned as they were prior to our living there, and now the images show them as they are after we moved out. I’m pleased to see that the gardens I put into our CA yard, where we lived from 2012-2015, and the one I put in our FL yard, where we lived 2015-2018, are largely intact and growing. Not one plant at either property predated my ownership. I’ve also included pix of the house we’ve been renting for two years. I don’t get the fun of planting and owning my garden here, but at least it is pleasantly palmy :-)
