Since I have nothing interesting in the line of cactus or succulents to show you, I thought I would do a stand in with Palm Tree Monday instead!!!
My grandson, Donovan, and I went for a wander down the edge of a canal one block over from my house. It is lined with apartments and condos and we walked straight down in their backyards, basically, along the canals edge. First, we came upon this really cool reflection of a palm frond hanging down into the water, and the reflection made it look like one of those "God's eyes" we used to make when we were kids with sticks and yarn. Do you remember doing that??? It was a challenge to hold the sticks straight while weaving the yarn around and around. Anyway, I thought this was a really neat photo!
Second is a pic of some seed pods floating in the water with other things to make an interesting pic. I like all parts of a palm tree...even the trashy pods that fall. They look particularly nice floating in water, don't you think???
Here is some great weaving of a lovely palm tree fiber that I think is the basis for keeping them standing during hurricanes!!! LOL...but seriously isn't this amazing?...the tight weave is another of natures surprises!
Last, I took a pic of one of the backyards at a condo building. They had lush green back lawn all the way out to the water, but little walking paths out to two table and chairs areas complete with grills at each, and also two of these areas here with colorful adirondack chairs, in sand and a palm tree in each too! Yeah, I could see myself living there...with my feet in the sand, looking at all the beautiful palm trees, boats and water!
Happy Cactus... er, I mean Palm Tree Monday!!!
