Random rainy photo's


Recommended Posts

G'day everyone, We had some much needed rain around these parts this afternoon!! Plants have been baking here recently and todays good rains are very very welcome! You might notice some burnt palm parts... They will grow out, I hope!!

Normally I have to water for a couple of hours a day which occurs when I get home from work around 5:00 pm, didn't have to water today so I took some rainy pics and thought I would post them instead.

No order or many coments here as my computer hasn't been posting properly recently, pics start in my front yard then move to my back yard. I can answer sp. names etc if anyone wishes to know them.. There is a few foliage plants amongst the photo's too, I'm sure you wont mind.

Other rainy pics welcome too if you wish to chime in....

Pete G, coccothrinax sp. barbadensis or alta I believe.

Philippe it's a Bentinckia nicobarica, I know you also gave these and they are Clinostigma lookalikes while young..... Fast growers too when they want to be!

Nice pic's Comic, yours looks about as full as mine!! Thanks for joining in!

Palmdude, there 2 coccothrinax species in that photo. the one with the narrow leaflets is C. agentata or C. argentea... I never know which one of those it is?? The other is the same palm I answered Peter G about, scroll up for the answer!

Daryl, there is definitely plenty of burnt leaves in this garden! Their presence helped me to decide what and where to photograph. If the photos were panned wider they would be everywhere so basically they are all just out of shot. You will see an example in the very first photo where I couldn't crop out the burnt Dypsis leaves.

Ben, this is very good. Just came across the thread now.

The thought of an "open palm garden" day has just channeled into my small brain.
