Flowering date palm

.

Jerusalem's International  YMCA tower.
But even more impressive,  at this season of the year, are the date palm trees in its courtyard.
Enlarge the photo with two clicks and enjoy the view of dates in the making.

I love palm trees. My grandparents lived on a street named Palm Drive, which was lined with date palms :)

I see these also on our palm trees, but I am not sure we will get dates here...

Don't let me get my hands on them once they are made...

Looks like there will be a lot of dates eventually! I don't think I've ever actually seen a date palm; however if I want to drive a couple hours out into the desert, there is an annual date festival in the town of Indio. One of these days . . .

Well composed picture, Dina, I like palm trees, they are always so exotic to me...
