    OOH, I just realized I have a BIRD of PARADISE!!!

    I thought it was a banana tree because it has these HUGES leaves!!! Then in the back of the tree I saw all these "blooms" shaped like a "bird of paradise". I trimmed the tree back and took off the dead blooms. It's pretty neat because the blooms really do look like a bird!!!!

    You lucky tropical-climate woman! I can't even imagine having something as exotic and beautiful as that in my yard.

    I didn't even plant it... it was one of the previous owners!! I hope we can save the plant.... DH wants to put a jacuzzi very nearby it (for his back injury from the rear end collision) and hopes the settlement will cover the jacuzzi. His back is still aching and he has to go to his Mom's and ask her to turn on the heat in her pool and jacuzzi so he can soothe his back. There are at least 3-4 stalks of the bird of paradise so hopefully 1 or 2 of them can be saved. Makes a nice private shady umbrella!!!
