Garden update #3 --- yet more plants

A couple of days ago a van loaded with a new batch of plants arrived at the farm. Instead of the usual hodgepodge, that day's delivery was more specific, limited mostly to two types of plants. That was after all my instruction, that they would concentrate on tree ferns and bromeliads plus a couple of jade vines.

Below are some of the tree ferns already purchased a few months ago. If you notice they have no leaves, that's because they had to be chopped off so they could fit in the van. New fronds are now beginning to sprout on some of them.

In a few more days another delivery of tree ferns will arrive. These new ones are taller than our previous purchases. How I wish I could see them, if only they could send more pictures.
