this bed gets full sun from high noon on, and stays relatively wet, I am thinking Sabal minor and royals?

of course livistona saribus could be the ticket as well.

Dick we also have the world famous snake farm on I-35 up by San Antonio and New braunfels, one of my favorite tourist traps of all times!!

I live right by it, pass it every day on way to work, but have never been there.  They had a TV show about it the other day on some cable channel, I guess they have gators there.

Jack doing sparklers, the wildest of 4 year olds and he is still pretty leary of fireworks. But he's warming up to them, the mortar shell shots kinda un nerve him with the noise so we shut down a little early.

ethans sparkler pic

Ethan has moved up to the mortar shell dept but I couldnt get the camera to click fast enough, those are by far the sweetest fireworks ever.

Ethans b day is 4th of july so we always hook up a big load then.
