New News But Old Delights

Posted by Jake on 2 December, 2009

Okay, so before I get to the news I thought I would show off some more pictures of the house here in Florida. I promise I am going to try and do a post everday or every other day on this blog until next Tuesday. Next Wednesday is when the truck starts getting packed and I don’t think I will have enough energy to post; you know how moving is.

Now to the news, I have started a new blog for Kentucky right here. Now, the post that no their will be the only post on the new blog until I tell you on here that I am no longer posting here. Currently there are pictures of the outside of the new house, my head is already churning out ideas, yay. Truly, nothing will probably get posted on my new blog until after the holidays in January because I won’t have time to put up all of your gys links on the new blog and I don’t want you guys to have to change my link during this busy time of the year.

Keep Checking Back this week, I am trying to close my last week in Florida with a marathon of post.

I am Back!

Posted by Jake on 25 September, 2008

Hello everyone, I am back. It has been a tiring week for some reason so I haven’t been posting as much. After complaining about no rain we got some over the weekend and an all day rain event Monday. I don’t think we are to much below our average rainfall for September now. I love wind…Tuesday was windy but Wednesday was even windier and I loved it. Then Wesnesday it was 68 in the morning and I loved it but, Thursday morning it was 58 had I loved it more. They are now saying it will get warmer and humid again…boo.

This week I put out the Halloween stuff I finished that Thursday night, I will have pictures later. It isn’t as much as I normally do but, quite frankly, my front yard sucks for decorating. I also planted Mums and Bush Daisy out at the mailbox for a autumn display. My Dwarf Cavendish popped out another pup last week, I moved it this week to the front of the house. My Musa Basjoo has alsp pushed a pup out so that is exciting. All the new additions to my yard from last week are doing well, the natural watering did them some good that ciy water just can’t.

Well enjoy the cool weather,


35 days until Halloween!

Okay, so the air conditon unit stopped working last night. Luckliy it was a cool day with our high near 86F degrees for the day. It got up to almost 87F in the house. Anyway, we call the guy to come over and look at it so he cn fix it. I didn’t think about going out and watching him do his job, I thought he would be considerate of the plants around the unit. The guy even took his shoes off when he had to come in the house to not track in anything. Well, the after math brought a Rose seedling smashed, along with three Daylillies. My Dwarf Cavendish Banana got a broken leaf and my Amaryllis got completely trampled. It really grew this past week from like one foot high to close to three so it really couldn’t have ben missed. I am so mad. It isn’t like there weren’t places for them to walk where there weren’t any plants. They have to come back Tuesday to do something and I guess I will have to go out and babysit them.

I will get pictures of the damage tomorrow and post it here.

Okay, so I finally have pictures of the new Elephant Ear and Caladium area by the Lanai. I have an update on the Coconut Palm and my Dwarf Cavendish Banana. In that same area you can see where I have taken out all of the ugly and unrruly green bushes tht were crowinding out the Coconut and Banana Tree. You will also be able to see my Buddha with two Bananas, the left side is Chinese Yellow Banana and the right side is my Musa Basjoo that has just started to grow. You will also see the Sindle Palm that I bought. I also took pictures of the Castor Beans and Queens Palm growth. There is also a picture of my unknow Yucca I got i Hilton Head Island last Summer.

Yesterdy was so HOT or atleast it felt that way. It was only 88F like Sunday but it felt like 114F at one point. I am glad that it wasn’t humid though, that would ahve been horrible. I hope it cools down and we can get some more rain. I will have pictures up of the Spindle Palm planted as soon as I plant it. I may try to get a Foxtail Palm tomorrow if Target still has them. The Target Garden Centre had them back in June, I hope they still do.

Have a great day,
