The Secret Palm Garden...Trip 2 part 1

I was fortunate enough to make another trip to the Secret Palm Garden. I met the lady in charge of maintaining the property. She was so nice. I have arranged with her to help id all of the palms in the community. In exchange for collecting some of the seeds. I have a specialist in mind to bring back with me on the next trip back to confirm id's with me. There are palms scattered everywhere. The community was advertised in the 80's as live in a botanical garden. This place is packed full of the rare and unusual plants and palms. I have taken some more pics of palms I came across this trip. There is still much more to explore. I will id the the few that I know as I go.
