The Extra Large one is a terrific photo; I always enjoy looking straight up like that! Palm trees are great for these kinds of views...they look a bit like umbrellas.

I find stuff like this fascinating!
Thanks.

I love all the sizes. Palm trees are awesome, and one that provides dates is just perfect. I love dates.

I really like dates. When I was in France we would get most of our dates from Algeria, the Deglet Nour but in Dubai, in the market, they had so many varieties of dates I had never seen before. I wish we grew dates around here, but I don’t think they grow in the US (am not sure though).

Hilda said...

This made me smile — thank you!

We have so many palm trees here, but surprisingly, no date palms. They're almost all coconut, though a few ornamentals are gaining popularity in the cities.

Louis la Vache said...

Ok, so where's the package of dates we are expecting from you?

FA said...

Dina, is this your garden? If so, it looks like you've been gardening lately. Your flower beds are very tidy.

I like palm trees very much - they remind me of my hometown in Southern California. They're very majestic, however they offer little to no shade!

Dina said...

Sara, I have a shot of that tree by night you'd like. I'll post it sometime soon.

Thanks, Yogi and Richie!

Vagabonde, I think California grows dates.

Hilda, do the coconuts ever, like, just fall down, on your head? :(

Louis, oh no ... you have to come and pick it up in person. :)

FA, I think your last post inspired me to do this one.
MY garden? Haha, no way! My yard is a jungle. I only do garden work for my nun friends. LOL

that was a lovely series on the growing up of date palms!

Robin said...

Fun series. The little ones always remind me of hairy pineapples LOL.

Impressive. I don't think I have ever seen them pictured this way. For us who know what a corn stalk looks like and that Palm trees are where Betty Grable lived, it is a revelation.

I prefer the large, also to pick up the fruits (less fatiguing)!

I love palm trees. I have a pretty big one in front of my house. It's a treasure..

Petrea said...

A nice selection! Do you get to eat the dates?

Pietro said...

Beautiful series, Dina!
I like palm trees.

The small one might fit on my veranda - when the clouds go away - some day...

This sequence is really cool, Dina! We have many of those here, nonnative of course.
