The dates are not yet fully grown but they look heavy and golden in the late afternoon sun.
(Even prettier if you click and enlarge them 2x.)
My new home of Meitar has many many date palm trees.
Short ones and tall ones.
The Meitar Regional Council (seen in this photo) has been busy planting even more of the impressive palm trees to beautify the town (especially now before the October local elections).
The Sukkot holiday starts Wednesday so the Council has made palm fronds available at a central distribution point.
The branches make good "roofing" when building our temporary sukkah booths.
