Saturday's Late Post: Blooming Palm Trees

Sorry I didn't post anything earlier. I've been out of town since Thursday night.

Lovely Wife and I were over in Zephyrhills, Florida until now (Sat. evening).




We have seven or eight small palm trees tucked up right in front of our house. They're about 7 or 8 feet tall. They're all in various stages of blooming.

These were taken on several different trees so y'all could see the different phases.

Check out those thorns in that top photo. When you trim the dead fronds off, and pull them to the street for pickup, it's nearly impossible to do without getting a few pokes. The thorns are about two inches long.

Ouch....Nasty pokes. Are these date palms or coconut? Or do they just flower? My ignorance is really showing. Nice shots John.
