In Fort Desoto Park, Florida, a ficus had grown over the fort and over the path to the otherside.  I was in awe of it as I always am with strangler figs/banyans and their relatives.  Then during a visit, I saw that the tree had been removed.  There was a sign explaining that the fort was in danger of eventually being destroyed by the tree.  I would love to see a sign there that states, "This is the site of Fort Desota, which has returned to nature and been replaced by this beautiful tree."

  and put away old myths and delusions. 

Joan! living in the society like mine, one can't get away from the myths. It comes in so many unaviodable forms. It is even the part of curriculum I teach. Even while saying hello and goodbys.

Wether you have noticed or not there are not many active non-Americans on Nexus. Reason for my hanging on is that it is only place for me where I can get away from the Myth arround me. I am personaly thankful to you because you are the person who is making this hanginging about easy.

I love those trees taking their own back, Joan! It always makes my day when I see a dandelion breaking the concrete.

Amer, you stated, "My wife says God is punishing the infidel this winter by opening the heavens again and again and destroying his cactus. Do Gods in America behave in this cheep manner too?"


I, and many others do not believe god/s exists, although there are many who want us to be quiet and stop rattling our cages. they don't want us to tell others there is no god and we do not have to submit and obey, that we have a mind that evolved over many billions of years and the purpose of our mind is to think, reason, grow in knowledge, and put away old myths and delusions.

The leaves aren't right. My guess would be viburnum. 

My Climbing Hydrangea looks more like yours, but I don't know its species. It is a wonderful plant. The nursery told me it would take five years to get started, and they were right. Now it is taking off like a real keeper.

Hydrangea paniculata ssp viridis

oops, this isn't pink; the leaves look similar.

First guesses, viburnum or hydrangea. Now, to the plant books.

Dominic Florio, your idea offers an interesting challenge. If they are easily found, perhaps they are easily made. A nice project to investigate. I hope you have a camera and keep us informed if you try. 

I Googled "cocktail citrus trees + grafting" and there are lots of sites; whether they are good, or not, I don't know. Perhaps Amer will be a good resource for you; Sentient has lots of experience and gives really sound advice. 

So, maybe it is time to get started.
