Wednesday, December 20, 2006Someone finally lives there... and they at least like palms, if they know nothinig about them... have a coconut planted in each pot... sure they will be dead within a few weeks. And all their Chamaedorea cataractarums, planted against the east wall, will be brown stalks of crunchy material after next summer.... that should pretty much put them off palms altogether... too bad. Just bad choices... but what a nice looking house... probably cost well over a million... yikes!

basically redoneHere it is... our old place (not house, just place- house is not recognizable). Still have at least one palm, and two strugglers I planted on the property. But what a monolith! Almost no yard left to do anything with. And we could NEVER afford to rent there now. yikes!

Old House just a memoryWow.. look what's going up where we lived just 14 months ago... hardly can tell it's the same place. Amazes me they can build such a mansion on such a dinky property. Wonder what it will go for.
Friday, February 17, 2006All the front yard vegetation I worked so hard on is also a distant memory, save for this one palm they decided to make an effort to avoid driving over. Should go by some night and dig it up...

Visit to the old RentalBeen a while since I went back and checked on my old plants left behind at rental... was trying to be 'nice' and help beautify the place... left about 50 succulent plants, 20 palms and 4 larger ferns... what a total waste of time. Here you can see only one palm remains of the ones I planted, and the succulent strip has trash cans on it. And the house itself? Well, just like all small houses in this neighborhood- being bought up, flattened and have huge, two story monoliths put in their place with just about 20 sq feet of yard left all the way around. They sell for about 2 million or more. There are only a few small houses left on this street. Sad.

structure at rental homeThen, built a shade structure at the rental home that was really nice... allowed putting potted plants on display and keeping them out of hot sun. This structure now dismanteled and parts used as benches to hold plants waiting to be planted.
