Paul, I don't feel so bad about not bringing my camera now! I never could of took pics as good as those. What kind of camera were you using? I feel like I just toured the garden all over again. Saw some more things I missed when I was there. For those of you that were'nt at this garden tour it was a little hard to see every thing in an hour or so. Palm overload for sure  :o . Thanks again Paul! Steve

Thanks to all of those who posted photos and descriptions of the tour.  I know that I totally enjoyed looking at photos.  Cheers for digicams and hosting services.  I am looking forward to the same for the biennial and subsequent tour.

Nice Zombia antillarum trunk, I assume.  All the pictures are great and even better that so many friends were able to spend time together in such a great location.

I wish we could have such events in the UK, but the only possible locations I can think of are Kew and The Eden Project, not that I would mind attending an event at either location.

In case you can't make it out, its a Chambeyronia lepidota.

Ralph Velez is too modest to mention it, but his garden was featured in a book , "A Man's Garden" by Warren Schultz, published in 2001 by Houghton Mifflin Company.  This book describes 14 wildly different gardens that are distinctly male.  It's a great read!

If you go to Amazon.com you can peak inside the book and read an excerpt that contains the entire article on Ralph with photos.
