Some of the Wildflowers of Dauphin Island


Some wake in the morning-> Close and go to bed at night->


My Sago Palms

These are not really palms. They are in the same family as pine trees.  The male is in the background and the female is in the  foreground

This is the male, it normally looks a lot like the female except it grows 18 inch cones, but currently it is crowning. An expert tells me the palm just became very valuable and rare. Watch it grow into an expensive plant.
