I have searched the 'net for days now trying to find good ancient garden sites. Still have'nt found anything solid. May go to the horticultral library in town and do some research. The palm sprout is an interesting option. Still trying to locate the flowers. Not sure if they could be an artistic interpratation-ie: fun to carve, nice to look at-but imaginary. Looked up a good Petra site, and that option is quite possible, as some of the other carvings were fanciful as well. It has been alot of fun trying to locate this information! Thanks so much for the challenge!
