      This afternoon I took photos of my largest garden area, which I call, no kidding, "Garden Lot". We bought this 125' x 125' 3-lot site in 2011 before Cape Coral began to emerge from the Housing Bust, during which the Cape had the 2nd most foreclosed real estate market in the US. Houses remained vacant for years, residents fled the state and no one would spring for vacant land at any price. We bought this barren patch of weeds and fire ants with the intention of creating a garden that would block the view of the newly built LCEC electrical substation, also known as "Osama bin Laden's FL Vacation Compound" for its sandy pink stuccoed concrete block walls. The erector set is installed but to this day the substation remains unfinished and inoperable. Par for the course in Cape Coral.
      The first palms we planted were 5 Bizzies in 3-5g pots. We later added another Bizzie as point because it was so purple. Now it is silver and huge. Juxtaposed with and behind the Bizzies we planted Livistonas. We wanted all decoras but ended up with 2 decora, 2 australis and 1 mariae courtesy of a nursery with suspect expertise that shall remain unnamed. Fast forward 9 years and what you will see in the following photos is what you get.
      Vacant End Lot: Sabal sp and flowering bottlebrush & Cocos trunk, bananas, bottlebrush

      Garden Lot Views: south side

      Leaning Coconut of Irma

      Livistona mariae

      Sabal palmetto of unknown age. Lot mowers had hacked it to the ground 6x per year for possibly decades. It just barely fits inside our property line so we decided to give it a chance to grow. This is what we have after 9 years.

      Copenicia prunifera

      Livistona saribus w/black teeth

      Borassus flabellifer

      Cocos nucifera Dwarf Red Spicata Twins

      Copernicia alba, Chamaerops humilis & Agave americana mediopicta

      Dypsis decaryi

      Roystonea violacea (f) & Cocos nucifera Dwarf Red Spicata single

      Today warmed up for the first time in over a week to nearly 80F. All my container palms from the lanai have been trapped inside since Christmas Eve and starting to show the effects of a dark, dry house. Before I let them free I swept and pressure sprayed the lanai for the first time in nearly a year to get rid of grime and spilled soil. Then put out all the palms and gave them a gentle shower and watering. Finally, I took the following photos, their last for 2020.

      One of the best sales in the state.   This year it is being held outdoors  (with masks & social distancing) at the Edison Estates.     This gives you the opportunity to stroll the Estates' gardens (free of charge, but admission or recpripocal garden card is required to go cross the street to the Homes) .

      Rainy season in central Cape Coral, FL, commenced Friday, May 22 at 6 p.m. with rumbling thunder and the Whoosh! of a gullywasher that dropped 2" of rain in less than an hour on our parched 0.61 acre of Paradise. That is the most rain I've seen in the past 6 months as we've been in an extended drought. We have 80% chance of rain this coming week.
