post # 115 is Encephalartos Whitelockii, named after Loren Whitelock, one of the world's foremost cycad experts.

post #121 looks somewhat like a freddie to me, although it could possibly be an E. lanatus.

You like those cycads, doncha Jeff?

A giant of a Caryota. Len seems to think it's not C. gigas.

Howea in full seed production. I know these are common out in So.-Cal, but I enjoy looking at everyone of them.

Hey, cut me some slack, ole buddy. I felt like a fish out of water sometimes when I was out there. I think I held up pretty good considering all  the hot breathing I constantly felt on the back of my neck. :D  But just wait.....when you come on my turf, you better bring your own palm books, laptop, and a botanist with you. :D  I'll make you so dizzy before the days end you'll be begging for that first beer! :D

After we left Jeff's house we went over to see Len's place. Len's garden is only a few years old, but already has plenty of neat stuff. He has a beautiful pool and patio area that's great for entertaining. The center piece is this large beefy Canary Island date palm.

One more of the leaf. You have to remember, this plant is not around much back in South Florida.
