I havenít posted here in a long time. I took a few pics yesterday in the back yard. The last 3 out of 4 winters have been unseasonably cold here, especially this past winter with 2 back to back, rare blizzards with prolonged temps well below freezing for several days in a row. 1 of the Majesty palms is finally starting to get a trunk. I planted it a long time ago in a galaxy far away. It takes a lot of time protecting it in the winter but well worth it!
The 2 Mules almost bit the dust, but they perservered! I protected the bud as well, which worked. All the fronds died
but the spears survived.
The Pygmy Date is protected like the Majesty.
