I love my little pond. It’s always full of life and the sound of the water calms me. I visit as often as I can, even if I just pass by when I arrive home and have a quick look. There’s always life in my garden. Passing by yesterday at lunch, I noticed a couple […]

Another palm in our garden is dead. Thanks to this beetle. We have to remove the “Khawajah” palm from the garden now and must get someone to come spray the rest of the palms so that they do not spread to the rest of them, or more importantly, don’t spread to the rest of the […]

Now that the sick palm is out, I decided not to replace it with another one. But I thought I would like to have a big tree there in any case, and as I’ve seen how beautiful the Araucaria looked in my neighbour’s garden, which is easily 15 meters tall, I’d go for that one […]

The Palm Tree is Out

The Palm Tree is Out

Quite a sad day today. We’ve had to have the palm tree removed. It didn’t show any recovery unfortunately, in fact if anything, it regressed as the canopy almost collapsed and the crown was tilting down, a sure sign of trouble.
