USDA Growing Zones 9 & 10 living & gardening!! 'Tis highlighted by the wonderment of experiencing exotic fan & feather-fronded Palms, an extensive array of spiny Cactus & dagger-edged Agaves, and a myriad of lush tropical foliage & flowers!
You are, afterall, enjoying the same plants that dinosaurs walked among, through & beneath! These plants should amaze anyone who has a sense of awe for life that continues to survive in areas of the world that are as warm & moist, as was commonplace millions of years ago. Living fossils! What a privilege to see them everyday and intimately; close enough to touch & admire their beauty, and realise that your views are shared by relatively few of your human contemporaries!
Ahh, the tropics: here, too, are all also those hypnotic & enchanting flavours, bursting forth from an abundance of some heretofore, unfamiliar-looking tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices; what an array from which to choose!
And that unique, incredibly vigourous year-around garden environment which beckons for decoration, to enhance that signature tropical feel in & around your home featuring lush greenery, intensely streaming sunlight, primary colours, & warm, moist, balmy breezes everywhere!
'Tis with this concept in mind, that I have envisaged:
