Looks like this past winter did a little damage, but they've survived in this little protective pocket since 2011.

All of that concrete/brick definitely makes a difference in winter.  :)  If they were planted in 2011 they saw 20°F or lower four times since then.  Those pics are obviously from different years but any idea of the years represented or how big the palms were when planted?  The trunk damage to one of the palms appears in 2 of the 3 photos.

I'd have to go back and look, but I believe they were planted in the spring or summer of 2011. I believe the Pink House lost a pair of Canary's in 2016, and it's about 5 blocks away from this locaton.

Right on Bay Street by the Starbucks?

That's right. My wife and I stayed at the Indigo last weekend for a short getaway. Was suprised how much River Street has declined after 8pm. Pretty crazy down there and decided to walk back up to Broughton.
