I agree that neat and trimmed looks beautiful and part of me yearns for that, and I like the front of my house to be that way, BUT around the back..... jungle rules and that is where my heart is. Nature should take its course and a bit of riot lifts the senses (in my humble opinion). lol

Nice bonus pictures! Everyone should have a pet owl, lol... they are my favorite bird of prey. I'm sure the banana guard dog helps out too!

I like your plumeria. The yellow is about the darkest yellow that I have ever seen. I have one called Kimo and when the weather just right the flower is orange. I have a picture of it on my site: http://togofcoralgables.com/FlowersofSept07.aspx

No kidding... I've got some catching up to do apparently.

By the way, Randy, I see you have some calocasia illustris... how do you store them for winter? just dig dry and store like banana plants?

The Illustris will be left to their own demise, or survival (hopefully)....
This is the first winter alot of my new ee's will be left out...
