Aloha TC-er's,

Finally I get to work on my own patio!!!

Tore out the old one ( a few of you've seen) and am making
a new one. We're in a 2 bedroom town-hut ( not much larger than my shop) a block from the beach.

I'll post pics soon.

MAhalo for looking..

Hey Ben, Do you think taro might grow in my weird side yard? It gets morning direct sun and then difused light all afternoon. I should have gotten those black taro babies from you ages ago. They'd be huge by now. Damn.

This pic is looking at our pad from the lagoon. Between the two cream buildings on the left is a small private open space.



So below our tiny north facing porch...



... is a long narrow raised garden. It's owner, our neighbor has told us to do whatever we wanted with it so the first thing I did was plop a tiki near the dryer vent! The secret garden is auto irrigated and extends another six feet left where there are already some dwarve bamboo and Jade plants.

I totally envy all of the tropical plants you guys can grow.....In the middle of Kansas, I'm not so fortunate to have such cool plantings.....I guess I may just have to move soon. I really like the burned treatment on your deck flooring....it looks very nice!!!

Flame on!

Then, Rock On!

What do you mean stacking stuff up?

Where's the beer to douse the flames when you have a flare up?

Buzzy Out!
