Tangy, that rockwall is super cool. I'm thinking of making hypertufa rock to surround my pond sides. Half of it is above ground and I don't really care for the wood surround.

Great link, Jarred!

I love the pond pics, especially the giant amazon waterlilies in your gallery. Do they survive the winters there?

No, they're not hardy here. I sure wish! I'm not even sure if they're hardy even as far north as northern Florida.
Thanks for the nice comments.
My bananas aren't all what they should be in the yard this year. The ones in the greenhouse for sale are great this year though. Something had to give time-wise, so it was some of my personal landscaping in the yard.

I am reluctant to do this. It feels.... odd. It feels like I am showing a thief everything in my house and giving him a map before he gets here. But nobody here would do that, so no worries!












I know, I know. Not very tropical. Sorry guys...

Lots more pics in the gallery. Feel free to take a look and give me suggestions about what would make it better.

Thanks Kylie! it is nice here, truly. But it has been a little dry this year. But it is funny that all week long on the weather channel, "Scattered Showers, Isolated T-Storms" Etc, but we never get any of it!

[/IMG]Great photos everyone. This is a great thread to get ideas from. I have a few bananas and other tropicals, most of my yard is plants easily grown in my area. Front and sides I did not show, just hostas and azaleas, etc. Well, here's some of my favorites.
