Riddle: What kind of tree grows in your hand? Answer: A Palm tree
NOT THIS ONE!!!!
Photos are from our Fish Tail Palm.
|fronds of Fish Tail Pond|
We did not like the neighbor watching us in our pool, so added privacy fence, which looked plain. Plant by plant, we stuck them here and there. At the nursery we asked for trees that would grow to 20 feet, to hide the 2 story house behind us from view. (their bedroom window looked directly in our kitchen door.
|seed pods of Fish Tail Pond|
Now We Know. they are taller than the power lines, which is a problem.
But The tree has provided many photo shoots for me
TO SEE THE DETAILS ON THESE PODS CLICK ON PHOTO FOR SLIDE SHOW
It goes from strings of green to bright pink acorn shaped balls, the color is magnificent.
The pod is like a Christmas decoration, placed their byGod for me to enjoy.
Then a couple of days later I noticed the color had changed completely
When I got close to it, each little pink pod had opened and a small yellow flower popped out.
Then it drys up and falls off. It is every bit as beautiful in detail when dead.
