BBL 2011-2012 | Plant a Palm Tree
#1 PLANT A PALM TREE
Why did I include this on my Bucket List?
I added this to my birthday bucket list because I have always been fascinated with palm trees. Previously, I had "live some place where there are palm trees" on my list. Once I relocated to Phoenix, I was able to mark that item off the list, and I decided I should honor the accomplishment by planting a palm tree in my environment.
Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?
What's not to love about planting a palm tree? The only thing I would have changed about it was to be planting it in the yard of my own home, but since we are still renting that wasn't possible. So, instead I purchased a small palm tree and a large pot to plant it in until we do buy a house and I can transfer it.
I decided on a Phoenix Roebelenii Palm because it was described as a smaller, slow growing palm. I thought that would fit my needs of wanting to plant it in a pot and then transfer it at a later date. I also like how they have multiple trunks and selected one with three for my palm.
Here is a series of photos that Kevin took of me planting my new palm tree...
My little helpers...
I totally snuck this one in right under the wire, as TODAY is my birthday and my next Birthday Bucket List is all compiled and ready to hit the blog in a few days. So stay tuned for what the next year will have in store for me.
