Tropical Dreams

palmtreeMy Dad and brother left for Mexico this morning. Even though our winter has been very mild and surprisingly sunny, I am still dreaming of tropical climes. It helped when I stumbled across this palm tree on my walk today. A windmill palm is perfectly happy growing in northern environments. The palm trees sprout yellow leaves, but only the female trees produce the palm nut fruit that you see here. Olé!
