We should proclaim Palm Tree Appreciation Day!

As you no doubt figured out from my gallery, I have a fascination with palm trees.  I think it comes from early Tin Tin books set on tropical islands or in jungles that I read while living in a cold and rainy city as an eight year old.

Herge's adventures of Tin Tin! Perhaps that would be 'Land of Black Gold' or 'Red Rackham's Treasure'.(I enjoyed them in my youth.)

Thanks. Some times you walk by the same place many times and then it reveals something to you.

The lines, the colour; gorgeous. I love the whole thing. I didn't even notice the people until right now, as I was typing. In the thumbnail, I really thought this was a train, lol Fantastic.

Thanks for the comment and, yes, the screening of the students working out on the field was part of the charm for me. Trying downloading the file for a real look!

What about Date Palm trees? ;)

In Los Angeles, only ornamental date palms are near streets, by and large. But within the Los Angeles area and then outwards towards the desert communities there are likely to be every kind of palm tree in the world. I love dates.

Me too!
You should try them the way the ancient Arabs used to do it;
by placing a date inside your mouth and sipping strong black Arabian/Turkish coffee with no sugar added.
The sweetness is released as you chew on the date. Divine!

These days people do the same using sugar cubes instead, but it's not the same.
