Palm Art: Tuesdays of Texture

IMG_3671 (1)

Twice a year when the men come to cut the basura from the seven tall palm trees in my yard, I get to see these beauties close up.  All of these small buds would grow into palm fruit, each of which is mainly seed surrounded by a jam-like coating in a bright gold skin.  They are delicious, but hardly worth the effort and the entire bundle makes a tremendous mess when it falls, not to mention the fruit bats they attract.  So, down they come every year.

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.

    We leave them for the bats. On account of how no one wants to bother to reach as high as needed to cut them down.
    Thanks for sharing in Tuesdays of Texture! Have a great weekend!
