Removed Cycad protection

Post by TimMAz6 » Tue Mar 05, 2013 7:49 am

I removed the Cycad protection...........simple large container filled with leaves and a string of xmas lights around the trunk.

They Cycad had leaf damage prior to protection from additional damage.....GOOD.

Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.
