Palm Trees



I have to say that I have never seen so many palm trees in one place which includes a trip to Hawaii I took decades ago. I was in heaven. I love palm trees. All of these photos were taken around the hotel grounds. It was simply beautiful. The weather during the day was warm and cooled off during the evening. It was perfect. I never thought I would find anything interesting to capture around a hotel but I managed some good nature shots. I will also have some very interesting shadow shots as well. Stay tuned.

Margie, if I had done that, my virgin eyes would have never been the same.

Miss Jo, don't act so innocent...who knows what sort of acrobatics you are doing off there in Hong Kong!! Or even at Ocean Beach, in the nooks and crannies.

They did have a lot of palm trees at the Radisson...I prefer coconut palms to these but, at least, we didn't have nuts falling on our heads...just nuts walking aound!

Carmen, you know me too well. And with the high flying melon ball incident on the plane to Hong Kong, it got me in the mood.

We were the nuts walking around the Radisson :D

Love the palm trees, the only ones I've ever seen for real was when I was a kid and went to Mexico with my parents.

Palms trees are one of my main plants. They make me feel like I am in tropical islands. It's great you've found these, the ones in the last picture is the kind I have. Happy Palming.

I think we Angelenos tend to take palm trees for granted. In fact, we find them more of an annoyance during rainy winters, because they drop their huge, dead fronds in big piles all over the street. It takes an out-of-towner to remind us of how beautiful they are.

It is going to snow here again today. I sure want to be where palm trees grow right about now. Nice post.

I wonder how the trees would look if you take a sunset picture. I love the clear blue sky on the first picture... xoxo

Love these trees. Unfortunately we don't have too many of them in Ireland.

I like palm trees too, they look peaceful yet strong. Good pictures.

I like palm trees. I've never had the chance to actually see one for myself. I guess I can be contented by looking at them in your pictures here.
