By Cindy Adair
Trimming my little artificial tree this year I noticed the many ornaments related to IPS travel.
Chime in if you attended any of the same IPS travel
or have any palm related ornaments.
First the decorated tree.
My first Biennial was Thailand where I bought several elephant figurines at one of the Nong Nooch garden gift shops and added ornament hangers.
The lemur brings back memories of an IPS Madagascar trip.
The Seychelles was a side trip with an IPS friend and their double coconut coin is a favorite.
And this Cuba bottle cap and a hot glued hanger topped some beverage on that post tour to the FL Biennial. No memory of the actual drink but perhaps someone reading this will fill me in?
Singapore and Australia have pretty coins too!
This hummingbird was from a botanical garden gift shop in the Director’s meeting in CA.
This palm tree was not IPS travel related, but fit the overall palm theme.
For those who missed her in the first photo, here’s my cat who is sure she is invisible.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Palm vendors will include Calusa Palms Nursery: http://www.calusapalmsnursery.com/
A full list of vendors is available at the event page.
For those who haven't been to this garden for either of tours or for a personal showing, you're missing out. Luckily, not for long. The new botanical garden is slated to open in Fall 2022.
For those familiar with the thread in the Travel Logs regarding Dr. John Rossi's Garden tour for the joint CFPACS + FCPCS meeting, you know how wonderful this garden was the first time. Now, the private garden is taking the next step and will become a botanical garden and nature preserve.
CFPACS and FCPCS had their Joint Holiday Meeting this weekend and were treated to a preview of coming attractions. Currently, the garden is home to over 300 species of palms and over 50 species of cycads. The garden also includes an area of "untouched" Florida, with tons of Sabal minor, Sabal palmetto and Serenoa repens under deciduous hardwoods.
You can see the new website here: https://www.stjohnsbotanicalgarden.org/
