That is so pretty, I've never seen a palm that color before. The shape reminds me a little of an old fan my grandmother had. Thanks for the giggles, it's been a long day.

Wow, I don't think I ever saw a plant so perfectly shaped like a fan before. Your riddles are funny.

Quite beautiful... And a lovely color... I can see someone taking a fond, into a paint store and saying; "I want this color paint, for my room." ,-)

As to the *Groaners,* Hehhhh... I'm not even gonna' say a word. Such *Groaners* are soooooo *awful* that they demand silence.

LOL!!!!!!!!

"Love and a cottage" is an age-old dream.

I love that fan-shaped leaf and the laughs!! Still warm here and I'm headed out in a t-shirt which is unheard of this time of year in these parts. Love it!

Wow, I've never seen anything like this! Is it in your yard? It reminds me of a fan, not the electric kind.

That looks almost artificial! Groaning at your jokes... (LOL) I've not been in good writing shape the last couple of days. Sciatica on top of the usual pains...

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hi Sandra, I was wondering if these spikes are as rought as they look and if these palms are used for any decorative purposes.

Chatty Crone said...

Of course I am going to tell Andy how trees get on the internet!

Rose said...

You are just a barrel of laughs today, aren't you? I wish there were more like you.
