Over the past weekend many exciting things happened and with my Everglades fishing trip coming up this weekend I plan to have even more exciting stuff to talk about when I get back. So on Sat. I went to a garage sale and met a very nice lady named Jeannine. She and her husband had a spectacular yard. They have some pretty nice stuff. Rare Palms a few different Pandanus's, cypress trees, bamboo, orchids, the list just goes on and on. We talked and she has invited me back to take pictures. So next week I am going over there and should get some interesting pictures. While I was there I bought some variegated Pandanus veitchii clippings and some unknown green pandanus with huge leafs. The mother plant had 3 ft of trunk and 20 ft leafs. They had huge patches of these Pandanus's. Then she had baskets of orchids all over her yard. She sold a few baskets and a couple potted orchids. 4 new orchids came home with me. I have leaft these on the front porch until I am sure that they do not have any mites or viruses. They have new growth but don't look that healthy, so I am nursing them back right now. Then as I was watering the banana trees and on the ice cream banana tree I have the 4th pup coming up. The largest pup is just needs to come off pretty soon. On Sun. I was helping my friend Aaron from A Yard in Fort Pierce. His neighbor was giving him a queen palm we just had to dig it up. Well she also gave us a box full of clippings. Ground orchids, succulents, variegated hibiscus, a few different bromeliads, unknown variegated leaf w/ red and yellow flower tree, along with a few other little unknowns. So here are a few pictures of my Scores/Purchases from over the past exciting weekend.
