Per the norm, members started arriving around noon and quickly became amazed with the transformation of Daryl's garden. Since we last visited the garden, Daryl has done a ton of work and has completely changed the way his yard looks. All of palms that Daryl has acquired over the past few years have really grown well, even exceptionally!

Soon lunch was served and the members enjoyed the wonderfully prepared meal. As always there was a lot of side dishes and desserts brought by members to compliment the meal. After the meal we had a very quick society meeting hosted by our Chairman Jon Watson. We covered up coming meetings and future activities of the society. Dates for the 2011 meetings are being snatched up so if you're still interested in hosting a meeting next year, please contact one of our officers. After the meeting was concluded, Daryl provided a guided tour of his yard and the various ways he's tried growing palms as well as harvesting rain water.
