And closer. These are really pretty. Can you see the nectar and the ants? They remind me of orchids.

Thumbs up Re: Banana updates June 6, 2006

Joe,

Your banana plants are beautiful but I like your Tiki Hut even more . Do you have any exterior pictures of the hut? Would love to seem them.

Regards
Phil

Here you go Phil!

From dissassembly to container truck to assembly here. I assembled (3 tries) it over my brick patio (easier to do) and have moved it to where it should be permanently.

That thing was really heavy. It took 12 macho men to have this moved from where it was assembled to where my inground bananas are currently.

Nice looking color on those flowers. Did you at least have some photos of complete huts to go by?

Nice banana photos (especially that last close-up!). Do the flowers attract bees & wasps, too?

I see I am not the only one drooling over your tiki hut.
There are certainly various levels of construction (&cost) - yours looks quite nicely put together (and heavy).
