Backyard Palm Trees: Sunday Trees 283, Apr 16, 2017


All of the fruiting bundles have been removed from my 7 palm trees by six men who worked for 6 hours to remove them along with the heavy sheaths you can see hanging down like swords and the dry branchess.  A big job. They are beautiful but messy and ultimately dangerous. Two or three times a year they climb these massive trees to remove them.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Yes that is exactly the things that are dangling down. I suggested to my husband that we had them removed (he was more in favour of removing the whole tree).
