Moving to Coastal GA - Various Photos

After 17 years in Atlanta, I'm in process to move from Atlanta to back to Brunswick, GA near where I grew up. Can't wait to start back at subtropical gardening.  Here are some recent photos I've taken of interesting sitings.

Not as impressive as the Bismarkias on Jekyll Island, but these on St. Simons have been here a few more years and are starting to outgrow their spot I assume

An incredibly tall Butia on St. Simons Island

Mature Phoenix canariensis one foot onto my new neighbor's yard (I'll claim it as my own but not have to deal with the falling fronds).

Bad time to take a photo, but I think this is a very tall Washingtonia filifera in Old Town Brunswick. I'll have to check it out another day.

Another bad photo but an interesting tall Phoenix palm in Downtown Brunswick. The crown was 1/2 or 1/3 the size of a canariensis. A hybrid most likely.

A mule palm that I "temporarily" planted at my dad's coast house about five years ago. He has grown attached to it unfortunately. Not sure how I will get it to my new home in Brunswick. The photo doesn't do it justice how beautiful it is.

The tallest Washingtonias I have ever seen.  Looks like a couple met their demise by lightning probably.

Great photos Jim! I have been to Jekyll, St.Simons, and Brunswick back in 1991 after I attended a conference in Jacksonville. I also stopped at Jekyll in Jan of 1986 on my way to Florida. Nice area.

Thanks. It is a great area and not too far from the really tropical stuff down in Florida. I'll be sure to post more photos of interesting things down there and how my garden develops.
