BASICS: This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
The sanctuary is ONLY open certain, very limited, dates/times, starting july 20, and ending sept 15, and ONLY by specific private appointment, at particular, available "slot" times posted at this blog. No visits of any type without a confirmed appointment (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu)

Martha Stewart's favorite palm
Here's a view from our back porch across Calypso pond. On the horizon you can see the coconut plantation, with Veselka, a fabulous beach-house in Double Bay that's for sale or rent (veselkabahamas.com) just visible. The pond is full, as is typical at the end of the rainy season, though it will slowly evaporate over the next few months. The palm with green-gray leaves is a Bismarck, from Madagascar, which is doing really well. The splashes of red are bougainvillea, hibiscus and oleander. There are a few coots on the pond, and egrets, too, but very quiet at the moment.
No real news on the lawsuit front (see jan 3 post), though a lot of activity.
