Default A Few Pics From My PA Backyard

Here are a few pics from my South Central Pa backyard . I started landscaping the area last year after we installed the pool in 2006 .

In the beginning ...



And today ...






Blooming Orinocos and Ensete Maurelli






Musella Lasiocarpa from Austin in Little Rock ...







Thanks to all for making this a great place to learn about bananas ( a couple years ago I had no idea this was possible) and special thanks to Randy4UT and Austin for inspiration and great plants .

Amazing garden! I'm glad to see the musella has really grown nicely for you, and it has a good sized pup already. Keep 'em growin'!

lol funny you should mention that. Someone must have let a few breeding pairs of tropical birds loose in my area. I now have about 40-50 love birds frequenting my back yard as well as a few conures and I even spotted a macaw this year. I live in AZ none of these birds should be here. They didn't start showing up in my yard until I planted the banana trees and the sunflowers.
Awesome back yard by the way! Especialy for PA!
