Urban Gardens Livin’ La Vida Loca

Even blogs need a vacation from time to time…Urban Gardens was on Playa Maroma in Mexico, about half an hour from Cancun, enjoying a respite from the relentless east coast snow.
Tropical flowers, oh how I wish I could have brought some back!
Ah, yes, pray to the Beach Buddah! Just happened upon this during a beach stroll.
Came across this large Washingtonia Robustus, or Mexican Fan Palm.
I thought it was a Mongoose in the tree..perhaps a Meerkat? They were very aggressive, we had to watch out for our food!
Ok, I just can’t figure it out. Can anyone identify this plant for me?
I really like how the plants emerge from these logs. Want to replicate this in my own garden. They would work well too for candles, don’t you think?
He spoke to me, and although I have lived in Puerto Rico and Southern California, I didn’t remember enough Spanish to respond…!
