I drove over to Mobile, AL for the annual spring plant sale that was put on by the Mobile Botanical Gardens. 

If you go the evening before the sale you get first pick on the plants. 

I does come with a $25 entrance fee.  Free wine/beer and a really nice layout of finger food.

The start of a banana plantation?


04 July 2013

Right after I planted the banana plants we had back to back freezes with terrible winds.

The leaves wilted and fell off, the center plant just fell over.  The roots later sent up these.
