Thanks to our hosts @ellidro and @Matt in SD for hosting us at your two glorious gardens this past Saturday!

Thanks to @Josh-O our PSSC San Diego area chair for setting this up!

Thanks to all who attended, Palm Talkers included (especially)! 

That’s me shooting off my mouth at the auction, with Matt our host standing off to the left in the flowered shirt.

Here’s a black rock in @Matt in SDs yard.  Looks like anyone who wants to make stone tools is all set for a while.

I've resisted hosting for so long just because of the amount of work it takes to get the garden ready when juggling a very busy life with young kids but it was all worth it. It was fantastic to meet some new palm freaks and fun to reconnect with some folks I haven't seen in a long time. Josh and Dave thanks for all the pre-tour work you both do in making these events possible.

You two hosting gives me incentive to eventually join the club!
It was great to see you and the garden again Nick. I loved the drizzle as it gave it the true rainforest feel. (Maybe not my favorite mode of transport via my motorscooter to get there! lol)

Two longtime friends with a collectors eye and appreciation. The difference really only being more space to plant out at Matt's.  A great day for sure!

To that end, as I've noted before, I rarely take pics, but here are a few from Nick's (Some not easily seen as Nick has them stashed away for future property. It was fun to see palms in pots that are from years ago and now impossible to find, waiting for their "moment in the sun". Exciting and cool!!)

At Nicks... (Nick, if you want any removed, let me know)

Not one of the "giants" IIRC, but a big, healthy Ravenea juliettae.

One of Matt's rarest, (as shown above) shown again, as compared to a small one of mine... but a closer pic shows the unique "3-4 day stubble" they have.

Matt's

My much smaller one. They keep the stubble!

A few more from Matt's... I hope more people post pics!

Since I'm hyping New Caledonia.. I should note the small Chambeyronia houailouensis just to left of walkway here.
 

379316399_694873242551025_7702890446147149896_n.jpg

This pic holds a small Clinosperma bracteale inside the left curve. Compare it to the large trunking Cyphophoenix elegans to its left. The size difference also explains the ease and speed difference between the two.
The slender palm to the right of the walkway shows a TRUNKING Kentiopsis (Chambeyronia now) piersoniorum! An EXTREMELY rare sight out of New Caledonia or some places in Hawaii.

378244111_622687483353416_8452809329832895146_n.jpg

Okay, I'll note the Tahina spectabilis to the left below... and the Acanthophoenix rouselli to the right of it. B)

Okay, I should have known, I have a big one, too, though not quite that large - missed the droopy leaf tips that appear to be a characteristic of the species.

Did anyone say how old that plant was?
