Last year I had my helper dig up some very old and bad looking hibiscus shrubs that bordered the perimeter of the property at the front along the roadside. I replaced them with Christmas palms and plumeria pudica.
Today we completed the job and I counted a total of thirty nine Christmas palms and about thirty seven plumerias. It will take about four years (geez sounds too long) to be fully appreciated providing we get adequate rainfall.
The grass was cut today and more rain is expected so I gave it a lower cut than usual. The dwarf yellow alamandas were trimmed back earlier this year and boy they are flowering up a storm.
The yellow galphimia glauca aka thryallis (showers of gold) now occupies this space that once housed an old tree stump. I have planted an avocado tree in the middle replacing the stump.
