Post Avocado orchard and around the neighborhood on a sunny day.
At $3 per Avocado at the Market,this guy has planted up what I think is a frost free hillside- south facing. If I knew the guy,I would advise him to try Mangoes. He's got a banana of some type.
And with some plants along the way...mini Horses too.

Ficus benjamina..a climate changing plant I say.

Image
Tecomaria capensis.

Image
Palmy.

Spring.

Image
The Dooby bros "Avocado Grove"..a classic.

Image
Nanner

Image
Citrus..lemons?

Image
Blooming Avocado's.

Image
Cute little guy huh?

Image
A little bit of everything..Agave even.

Part of a real wine making vineyard in town. The local Brothers are growers.

CIDP and Daylillys.

TALL philodendron.

Stan, your neck of the woods may be way overpriced, overpopulated and underwatered, but it sure is pretty! Way more subtropical than here... I'm jealous.

I want to point out that the commercial Avocado orchards around San Diego are 500 miles (The Proclaimers!) south of here and that's what makes this special.

Avocados are more coldhardy than mangos ; some of them can grow against walls in mild Britany at about North 48° latitude.
