      SAVE THE DATE!!!

      Central & North Florida Palm and Cycad Society
      Holiday Gathering

      Saturday, December 8, 2018

      11:00am – 3:00pm

      Private Garden of Ron Hart & Maryann Krisovitch
      6701 Lake Kirkland Drive, Clermont, FL 34714

      The Society will provide drinks and the main dish.  Please bring a side or dessert to share.

      About the garden:  Ron & Maryann have been members of the society for over 10 years and have also served as President and Treasurer.  They recently moved about 80 of their 170 palms and cycads from their home in Apopka to their new lake house south of Clermont.  While the home is a new place for Maryann, Ron actually built the home 15 years ago. Many of the palms he planted back then are still there and thriving even though he was gone from them for the past 10 years!  You’ll see the struggle the plants are facing since removing plucked from a shady oak canopy half-acre yard to a mostly sunny acre on the lake.

      Please R.S.V.P. by the Monday before the meeting to Maryann at palmsocietytreas@aol.com

      What you need to bring to the meeting:

      A plant for the auction (does not have to be a palm, palm-companions are good too!
      Sides or dessert
      A chair for your own personal enjoyment!

      Hello from Cali, Colombia. It is the evening of the Farewell Dinner, but I will take a few minutes to post some pics from the adventure. Bo (bgl) and I spent a few days in Bogotá in advance of the Biennial. We visited the Jardín Botanico de Bogotá and also went up the teleférico to the top of Montserrate to take in views of the city. The elevation of the city is 8,675 ft. (2,644 m.) and the top of the hill is 10,341 ft. (3,152 m.), a good way to acclimate for hiking at lower levels to see Ceroxylon.

      Maybe you have not given it any thought yet, but what about New Year Resolutions for your palm garden, or life with palms in general -- travel, collecting, deleting, palm care?
      There are always chores or ideas I plan for the garden that are not initiated or completed, and thoughts about travel, whether near or far to see palms.  A recent visit to a palm friend's garden kind of stoked the fires again due to his terrific collection (thanks BS Man!).  So here are a few thoughts converted into resolutions for 2018:
      1)  A shopping trip to Floribunda! The most outrageous palm nursery on earth, and being so lucky to have access to it by simply taking a drive? A visit is WAY overdue.
      2)  Finally plant all those palms that have been sitting in pots for 2 - 3 years. Am I the only one suffering from procrastination?
      3)  Fertilize every single palm at least twice in 2018!  (that's expensive, but important)
      4)  Take time to sit back and enjoy the palmy view at least once every day while in the garden.
      5)  Register for the IPS trip to Colombia! (fingers crossed, hoping it all works out)
      6)  Reprise visits to the gardens of palm friends.  Things have grown, and it will be fun to see the results.
      So, how about you? What are your palmy plans for 2018?
