Trees aint cheap at all. It is kinda a pain though and some times the tree doesnt make it But I've had pretty good luck....only lost one out of all so far.

i was actually joking about the seeds. i was being goofy about "jem" seeds
if only...
the FP does have a nice garden look to it with the green vine and the BFP and VSBL are interesting "garden variety" guitars with their blue vines.
i liked the pic where it seemed like a meditation alter with the Jems. a ice place to be at one with your jems.
i live in a townhouse a few blocks from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) so a quiet place to "be" isn't an easy quest without driving out of town for it.
you should definitely appreciate the space you have - i'd love to have it myself.

I live in CO where there is a lot of space (although its' quickly becomeing less and less) I could NEVER live in a big city. NO concrete jungles for this lad. I'll post the before after shots a bit later.

Re: "Jems in Paradise"

That's an awesome collection!
I always loved taking pictures of my guitars outside...must be something with the wood.

Here's some of my collection over the years...many are pre digital, so bear with.

Re: "Jems in Paradise"

Lovely Jems. Lovely garden too. I like the spirals, are those Taxus?

But why no pyramid guitars. I like the vines, but I would love to have pyramids as well.

Oh, and yeah you have too many florals. :hypno mode: send nick your BFP. send nick your BFP. send nick your BFP. send nick your BFP. send nick your BFP.::

Hope that works.

Regards Nick

:hypno mode: gimmie your address nick. gimmie your address nick. gimmie your address nick.:: Thanks, lol. Well, I'm kinda looking for a PMC (Pyramids) But I have to say I am a fan of the tree of life vine. Pyramids are cool though. Vines have more of the garden look to them. I'm actually not sure what the spirals are called, but I saw um and had to have um. gimmie your address nick
