2017 Spring Garden Tour

April 29, 2017

 

Spring Outing, April 29, 2017 We visited three residential gardens, the first was Dr. Page's home in Palmetto Bay, Florida. What really stood out, was the enormous Talipot Palm, located just about six feet from his house. He has been collecting palms for a long time, and his garden was stunning. Palm trees require patience, but the rewards are a landscape that becomes more attractive each year.

After Dr. Page's home, it was off to Coconut Grove, to visit Manny Prieguez, with another outstanding landscape, including a Joey palm and other rare palms.

 

The final stop on our garden tour was the home of Laz Priegues, who has another outstanding landscape in house he completely renovated. He showed the group other palms in his community which he has helped plant and maintain. A true lover of palms.

 

 

The afternoon ended with a wonderful picnic in Laz's backyard and time to admire more his wonderful landscape.
