    ...and with apologies to T.S. Eliot. But here's some pics from last December - before the weather turned to ^%$#@!. More to follow in this thread.

    lland now a few before and afters. The afters were taken today; the befores are fromf last Nov for Dec.

    First two are of happy plants in pots and then fried sticks most of which fmay bounce back.

    The next two are of Polychrome and Red Excurrens. The Licuala peltata var sumiwongii in the white pot survived with minor wind damage. Two other Polychromes in a bit more wind pretected location did not miss a beat.

    Madame Butterfly and Wooten's Beauty also came through unharmed.

    Playboy is still one that needs to make it's way to my garden.
