    The garden is two & half manicured acres of rare palms, cycads & crotons.

    After a break, the auction was next. We tried to keep Mike busy with the Glock's Lab puppy & the neighbor's Basset, but he managed to free himself to outbid me. :rolleyes: Some rare, some common, their all going to a new home.

    The auction was pretty heated. After Jeff saw croton cuttings were going as high as $40 plus, he started cutting up everything in sight:D (no he didn't, but he would of if we didn't confiscate his cutters). I think the Society may be in need some armed security at the auctions. Thanks again to the Glock's for their hospitality!:D

    Randy,

    Nice pictures! I'm going to try and post some later tonight, I just got a new cord so I can download from the camera to the puter.

    Look how amazing the yard looks with the manicure beds and nicely mulched planting areas.

    Question for our host, any idea on number of different crotons planted in your yard?

    And what was so nice was, every croton and palm species how their own identification tag on it.

    Thanks again, Randy.

    Wow! Magnificent palms and an impressive collection of Crotons. Looks like a king's ransom was auctioned off.

    Its about time you finally got a cord to down load photos from your camera to your computer. Now lets see some photos!!! :eek:

    By the way Glock, the hot blonde you set me up with left me for a squirrel during the auction. :p
