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!
A few from Weymouth on the south coast of England...
So this glasshouse and garden is located about 10 miles northeast of my location, just on the outskirts of south London. It's a bit of a hidden gem, although not quite on Kew Garden's level...
A stunning Bismarckia Nobilis that must be at least 20 foot tall...
They've got some stuff growing outdoors as well...
So I am currently on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. You can cross over from Portsmouth on the ferry, which takes about 30 minutes. The island is a palm paradise in general, but the southeastern portion is almost like a mini Califronia. I will let the photos do the talking. All these CIDP and Washingtonia were planted tiny about 10-15 years ago now.
I'll start with the Trachycarpus Fortunei...
Going in heavy with the Washingtonia now. Excuse the sun in my eyes...
There were several Jubaea Chilensis planted out...
About a mile down the road we sat down to have lunch, as dolphin pods jumped out of the water while we ate...
Off the coast of Niton, right next to the spot we ate at, I spotted a Washingtonia in a back yard. Unfortunately the garden was not really accessible to get photos, so I unlawfully hopped the fence to get some shots. Not really being one to follow rules, I am certainly glad I went over, since it turns out there were two Washies in that back yard...
Massive palm updates from the Isle of Wight coming. I have barely scratched the surface here...
