@NickJames If you ever sell the house, that photo would do the trick!  Nice work and very appropriate lighting for Halloween.

Ew. LOL. 

59 here.

It is shockingly different over here than up there. Isn’t that something?

Wind chill is 39F, real temp is 42F. No frost today just cold! Cold enough for the foxtail and bottle palm to come inside for the night. I didnt want to chance it :)

Good idea! Got down to 54 here eventually once the wind died down.

The Cape Plumbago will help keep your Coconut warm on those chilly nights in the mid 50’s! :floor:

I have SO many snakes, usually 2-3 sightings per week. Mostly black racers...but also have peninsula ribbon snakes, florida banded Watersnake, eastern garter snakes...it’s almost comical how many there are.

Outstanding work! What happened to your "hedge" of Dypsis, did you remove them?

No! They’re still there on both sides. Both these angles don’t show them for some reason.

@NickJames LOVE THE LIGHTS. Looks like candy cane palm trees just in time for christmas. 

I've found it increasingly difficult to get "vintage," as they are called now, christmas lights. 

When I do find them, they are more expensive than the LED's. haha

That's nicer looking than my pair of Spindles in the backyard...not a shred of green left!  The spear is moving slightly, so if I don't get another under-freezing cold front it'll live!

Unfortunately, my bottle was decimated by my heating cable! I wonder how it would look had I not burned off the two new spears.

It’s been a rough winter lol. The photos are a little over dramatic because of all the shadows today. The D. Decaryi will be fine I think. That definitely is a deceptive photo because it looks fine in person. The browning fronds have been on there for 1.5-2 years I imagine and are ready to come off soon.
