Day 6 - Palms

Day 6 - Palms

Our 5 acre property contains palms. Lots of them. The more prolific of which are the Golden Cane palm planted with the sole purpose of keeping our business private. We're on acreage. Go figure. Anyway, apart from being the perfect habitat for gorgeous little frogs, these Golden Canes shed their spent fronds more frequently than we would like (especially the kids because they have to move them) but they also make a fantastic bonfire at dusk. We also have a few Royal palms and some others that I haven't really been interested enough to remember their names. It's like the Palm God vomited. Anyway, they aren't all that bad and they do provide a fresh, tropical feel to our landscaping especially when they get seed pods which burst forth with flowers just like this one.
