By George, It Did It!

Look what I found today! The Coco de Mer broke ground and germinated after all. In March, I came here and nothing had happened, but today is quite different. The double-nut from the "République des Seychelles" (Repiblik Sesel in Créole) finally emerged after more than a year hibernating. Its companion, the second double-nut is also in this shot, further up in this photo where you can see the second irrigation system. It is slower and probably will peek-a-boo with us soon. How exciting! Watching this plant grow will be so zen... In a way, it's like watching the world in slow motion. I like that!
