Interesting finds today in rural Florida

Recommended Posts

Driving to a work function and had time to stop for photos!

First up, cocos in Tangerine, FL. Nearest cross street below. They don’t look that old considering their growth rate. No meaningful bodies of water observed nearby that would generate a good microclimate. Probably not a long-term survivor?
 

Next, mature dypsis lutescens and Ravenea rivularis. These specimens have obviously been here quite a long time. Located near Howey-in-the-Hills on the south shore of Little Lake Harris. I imagine they must have a decent microclimate.

@NickJames If you have time, head to Sugarloaf Mountain and look out over Lake Apopka.  It's a pretty nice view on a clear day.

That Coconut Palm is in for a hurting Christmas Eve if it even survives!  I’d like to see another pic in like 2 weeks.

That’s such a unique spot! Glad you’ve been there, I don’t think many people even know about it.

Ok, this photo is hilarious. 
 

The crew took it while they were filming me. It’s hilarious because I’m a palm nut and there’s a big Phoenix species looming over me.

The crew was filming you? Aren’t you a realtor?

Yes, but I also work for a communications/marketing consulting firm  that does work for public sector. 

I used to be a tv news anchor so you can’t keep me away from the camera too long ;)

Nick, this does not surprise me.  I imagined you with the personality for this!  Nice video clips - looks like you've got lots of professional options!

I forget that when I type posts on here, you all aren’t actually hearing/seeing me :)
