Banana trees on Hauptstrasse, wrapped up

So this is how the banana plants survive the winter here...

Im moment sind es 12 Grad ist nicht wirklich kalt aber hoffentlich kommt der Winter bald.
Sieht aber auch als Weihnachtsgeschenk hübsch aus.
Google Übersetzung :-) sorry mein Englisch nicht gut.
In the moment there are 12 degrees is not really cold, but hopefully the winter is coming soon.
Looks pretty, but also as a Christmas present.

Over here Fall is so sweet that we did not cover our bananatrees yet.
Both beautiful Christmas gifts !

Poor things. They should mail them to Key West wrapped like that, for a proper winter. It's still 25C and no frost (or lichen).

Paula: As ilcuoco said, it hasn't actually been as cold as it should be here at this time of year. Although this evening the temperature dropped quite suddenly.

Claude: Hope your trees will be okay if there's a sudden cold snap.

Conch: According to Wikipedia, lichens grow in some of the most extreme places on the planet. I suspect you have lots in Key West and you just don't know it yet.

I hope someone picked the bananas before the trees were boxed up!
