Re: So...

No furnace hugging here, Jim.
Too warm for one thing. For another we spend the day teaching a large class hypertufa trough making. Was about an hours drive from here at a decent size garden center. Since we were inside the large greenhouse over there the rains and storms did not interrupt ... just the rain go so loud at times we had to stop talking and wait for it to pass. Eased up just in time for everyone to get their toughs covered and carried to their cars to take home. Had to make a couple of stops on the way home so we did not arrive here until late afternoon and sure was one pooped puppy.
I managed to come home from a garden center that relies heavily on trees and shrubs, landscaping contracts, without a single plant in the van. Must be old age or something. Sure was not form a lack of good stock and large sizes.

What's happening today? Everyone huddled by the furnace, or what? I found a nice little triangle palm [Dypsis decaryi] at HD this morning. Six inch pot, maybe 18 inches tall, labeled "Tropical Foliage" for about $5.00. Been wanting one for a long time but didn't want to spring for the larger ones I saw. This purchase brings us to having at least 10 different species of palms at the plantation and maybe two dozen trees in all.
Triangle palm is so named because the trunk has a triangular shape. Quite interesting. The trunk also has to reddish color and the fronds are dark green. Quite handsome.
