Just Passing Through or Staying a While?

Two-residents

After the hurricane did so much damage to our banana trees, we decided to thin the banana herd and took down quite a few. We have given away some to friends and, finally, transplanted a few to a more protected area of the garden. I went out to see how the transplants are faring. They seem to be doing well and I found these two little guys in the center of one of the trees. Since we are on the edge of a small lake, I don’t know if these two are just visiting or will like our garden enough to take up residence.

Until Next time,

Toni
