Morning Light in the Garden

Recommended Posts

Kim

That golden light of morning really lights up the palms. Walked around with the iPhone this morning and this is what I saw...

I wanted to get a pic of the just-planted Cryosphila sp. It was very root-bound in a 3-gal pot that had to be cut apart to liberate the palm. It's about 4 ft. tall at the tip of the highest leaflet.

Just behind me the sun was lighting up one of my 3 Dypsis hovomantsina, getting very beefy.

Looking eastward from the same spot, Dypsis lastelliana, Licuala peltata v. sumawongii, and a Pelagodoxa henryana lit by the sun's rays.

Walking along the path toward the sun, I turned and captured this view...

On the other side of the path, the young Tahina spectabilis was begging for a closeup.

Farther along the path, Pinanga philippinensis looking glorious

My tallest palms, Ptychococcus paradoxus, high in the sky

The sad state of Kerriodoxa elegans after a giant Cecropia branch fell into the group. They are damaged, but will recover. Removing the Cecropia branches is a huge project. I've gone in once with the chainsaw and barely made a dent in it. Never a dull moment. :wacko:

Great pictures as always Kim! I'll second the glorious look of Clinostigma samoense and the D. lastalliana are just eye candy.

Now I have some hope for my four Pinanga philippinensis, planted less than a year ago and still struggling to adapt. Good photos, Kim.

Thanks all for the kind comments! For a few reasons I was away from my Hawaii garden for many months, and it's so good to return to see it thriving.  And what a good feeling to be planting new palms, too.  I'm sure you all know what I mean. B)

I love your garden design and photos-so artistic and such nice palms!

I can relate to the cecropia (they call them Yagrumos in Puerto Rico) challenges as well. Almost impossible to remove larger ones permanently and they grow so fast and fall so easily. Pretty but a pain.

Enjoy your tropical paradise.

Future home of the giants. 1= Neoveitchia storckii, 2= Corypha umbraculifera, 3= Caryota obtusa, 4= Metroxylon amicarum (small seedling hiding in the coleus). The coleus provide year round color and essential weed-fighting ground cover until the baby palms get some size. This is what winter mornings look like in Hawaii.

@Rick Kelley Future giants, for sure! That Metroxylon amicarum may be hidden now, but shortly it will surpass the Neoveitchia storckii. So much fun watching the garden grow. :)
