The evening we spent at Judith's house for dinner she mentioned getting a 'taxi truck' (literally a taxi with a flat bed for hauling). I nearly fell over. Last Tuesday, I spent a delightful afternoon sitting drinking iced hibiscus tea while Judith directed which plants to put in the back of the truck. It took two strong men for a couple of them.
My jardin is now well underway. What a difference a day makes, and a very dear and generous spirit.
|A gorgeous young palm. Actually two palms. Looks great on the terrace and will offer some afternoon shade when it gets a little taller.|
|A huge tree which they had just pruned. Not sure what it is. Hope it flourishes and spreads out. May have to move it if it's not happy there. Geraniums, a lovely bougainvillea bush and another unknown.|
|Another grouping of plants below my terrace. Three more small palms, mums and calla lilies|
|A great spider plant.|
|A peace lily in a funky pot which will be great in my covered terrace.|
|And an oleander, which will grow huge in this pot.|

Isn't that the truth. Many of us, including ME, do not dream BIG enough, do not ASK for 'this or more'. I'm working on that one.
