I have always acknowledged that I'm no expert. But what I do have is a genuine love of gardening. And since my namesake is all about the palms I thought for my one year anniversary I would share some happy September SUMMER palm photos. And what better than with my very first palm.
Things have certainly changed over the years of gardening. This last year brought on many yuccas and agaves. And with the summer we have been having, I'm certainly to have some extra drought tolerance.
Sometimes I wonder, can I really fit in more palms? What will be next?
And then I remember, there's always pots for that!! My phoenix canariensis found its home in a pot. Though it's not quite hardy enough (but has that ever stopped me?) I simply wheel it into our subterranean unheated shed on the coldest nights of the year.
Looking at treasures like my trachycarpus wagnerianus, I wonder what treasures this next year will bring? What plant will make my heart stop and break the bank? Will I start planting flowers again? Or will new and exciting foliage find its way in as a contrast? Or both?
To be honest, I really don't know where this next year will take me. All I know is that I'm leaving room for the spontaneous. I'm leaving room for new and exciting things to happen. I look forward to it. I look forward to hearing about everyone else's gardens. I look forward to continued friendships and new ones.
Thank you all for putting up with my antics. Thank you for putting up with my palm tree rants and my misadventures. Here's to new adventures and plant lusts!
