Re: More of my temperate and tropical mixed pix.

Nice pics, Stan.

I'm always amazed at what will grow side by side out west. Very different from what will survive in the east.

A few years ago, I was in Napa Valley and I saw some Queen palms. They were not happy, but surviving. Not warm enough. About a quarter mile away, someone had a Colorado Blue Spruce. Again, not happy, but surviving. Not cold enough. I had a hard time believing that these two species could survive in the same area/climate.

Keep posting interesting pics. Everything here is pretty much brown and grey right now. Of course, I have southern mags, palms and gardenia that are green. They're enjoying record warmth. 72F today! If I can keep the deer from eating my gardenia, I'll be ahead of the game.

Take care,

Ken
