Palm Trees.

I couldn't explain my fascination for Palm Trees, but it is a fact I am deeply in love with them. 

Maybe because they remind me my childhood? Or because they disorient me, they are a way to escape from Paris, they are synonym of good times, holidays, freedom? 

Here are some pictures showing them in all their beauty: 



I have several hundred images in my Palm Tree folder!

FOR SURE, Palm trees can be things of beauty -- this is the view leaving my front door in the evening

However, this is the view of my palm trees reflected on the ash-covered hood of the Volvo after California wild fires 30 miles away from here

View looking up from a nearby street

Another look at a group of palms nearby

Oasis in the Anza-Borrego desert

Front yard, with airplane

A reminder of how much the annual haircuts for my trees cost me (no I don't do this myself).

Cool! [nt]

Love palm trees and your photos.

I also associate palm trees with happy times and have childhood memories of frequent visits to Maui...  perhaps my favourite place on earth to truly relax. These trees make me smile. 


Thanks, my friend, for your nice answer. [nt]

The palm branch is a symbol of victory, triumph, peace, and eternal life...

originating in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean world. 
I was surprised to learn that there are around 2,600 known species.

The first photo is very nice...

I didn't know that, either! [nt]
