@CalamityJane,
About two years. My first winter here was the coldest in 30 years and everything died in the front yard. The palm trees froze in the middle and rotted.

I called out a service to take everything dead out of the yard and started planting everything new.

@jcboy,
wow, things have grown quite a bit in those 2 years then. Keep that in mind for your new home, don't plant things that grow too fast Wink

@CalamityJane,
Oh yeah, I have learned living in Florida everything grows twice as fast and the yard work is never ending! But in the new place we will have a service to help us with the work, we can’t be doing it every weekend, we just don’t have the time.

@CalamityJane,
Doesn’t matter, he will tear down the new house and start it all over again from scratch. I caught him looking at that arch website this morning. Drunk

@jcboy,
Hopefully you have learned to read up on plants before you buy them. No need to have a high-maintenance yard. If you pick plants native to the region, it should look good and appropriate and be easy to care for.

Check out this air plant. I use to have to buy them when I lived in CA. Here in Florida they just fall out of the trees!

@jcboy,
They look a lot like the houseplant we call spider plants. They grow miniature versions of themselves on runners like strawberries.

@jcboy,
That's an awesome one! We have a couple here but they are smaller.

@jcboy,
I like epiphytes. You see them in a lot of high-rise condos because they're so low maintenance.

@ehBeth,
My plumeria is starting to bloom. I thought I had planted them too late but I guess not. Can you see the baby lizard on the leaf?

Also the bromelaid’s are are blooming like crazy!
