We rarely were able to have the front windows open because of the dust and dirt that came in. There was also noise and exhaust from traffic passing, as well as anyone walking by could just look right in.
We eventually had 14 ft high block walls built. Oh my what a fabulous difference that made.
|how pretty does this look, |
now how will people find us?
Well it's definitely a royal palm; and it has grown so tall, too tall. It's getting more and more difficult to get to the fronds before they fall, and they are seriously heavy. A few weeks ago the electric company, CFE, came through and cut all the fronds extending over the wall to be even with the wall and then tossed the fronds in to our front garden.
I was less than pleased, not about then cutting of the fronds, but by the tossing over - I have orchids art pieces, and lighting set up in that small garden. I love that little garden.
Well the palm had to go - I checked about, and no one was willing to move it, nor thought it could be moved and survive.
|we started by removing plants we want to save.|
Just look at that huge orchid hanging there
|just look how tall|
|the view from the street|
|aack, I can't bear to watch|
|the huge heavy fronds are dropping|
so sad! One of the saddest things I can think of is having to destroy a perfectly healthy beautiful tree.
So help! what should i put there?
