Dominic-  your property looks lovely!  You have a nice "Old Florida" place.  Have you read the book, "A Land Remembered"?  If not, I think you might enjoy it.  The main "character" of the book is the state of Florida.  I had my students read it this year (the student edition) and they thoroughly enjoyed it.  Congrats on created such a beautiful spot. 

Dallas-  I love the idea of us all sitting around having lunch!  I know it's not physically possible, but I sure would enjoy that!

Joan- What is gropple??  I grew up in Chicago, but never heard that term.

Keeps the photos coming everyone!  Like Joan, I love to see all of the incredible work everyone has done with their plants and landscapes.What a talented you all are!

I just want to say to each one of you how much I enjoy your photos. It really is a relaxer for me to come to this site and browse through all the beautiful and healthy plants.
We had snow yesterday that stuck for several hours. Lots of gropple too.
My Helleborus niger, (Christmas Rose, Lenten Rose, or Easter Rose) is in full bloom now. I have whites, pinks, yellows and a dark maroon.

Dominic, how beautiful the way you put the birds areas into the landscape! I bet there are a lot of natural insects that come in and provide fresh treats for your critters. 

What about snakes and reptiles? Do they visit you? and what kinds? 

How do you manage watering? Everything looks so fresh and flourishing. Even the pots. I live in a semi-arid area and have a hard time keeping clay pots watered unless I have them on drip hoses.

Dominic, a lovely spread, full of so much color and form, lots of textures, and hardly a bird in sight. You must have them in well covered areas among shrubs and trees. I see very little of your wire areas for birds and other wildlife. How much ground do you have here?  What is the bright red blooming plant, next to a little bit of structure showing. I like the way you use red clay pots, perhaps hanging from a fence or a support. Very nice feature. Spanish moss adds to the tropical scene. What elevation are you at; will you be bothered by ocean rise? With all those trees and strong winds, have you had any structural losses to your buildings, or your aviaries?

So we were discussing trees and mowing.  Part of the reason why I bought my property six years ago was because of the big trees.  It is hard to grow most things in the full sun in Fl.  These are pics from around the property, two days after mowing and no raking.  I never rake.  The mowed leaves quickly return to the soil.
