Palm Pods for Ginny



All Palms have pods, some have several different types, some are fruit, some are seeds.. During my walk I saw a pile of pods and the trees they came from..
You know the rest of the story

I have a snapping problem. I saw the pile of pods, I thought take a photo for Ginny, since she said she did not know Palms have pods/fruit, and thought they all had coconuts.

I ended up with about 20 photos of the trees they came off of and the pile of pods... Snapping Adiciton is what it is...  I am trying to remember if I EVER took JUST ONE photo of anything.

Do you take one shot or multibles?    PS! this was intended to publish at midnight for today, Just realized I left it in drafts............. woe is me on my memory...

I once got some pods from a palm tree and tried to get palms with it, it didn't work... do you know why?

My Mind's Eye said...

Oh my word I am always amazed at the lovely tropical trees and plants and such you have in FL. Thanks you for the lesson on Pods
Hugs Cecilia

Wow, I LOVE it! Thank you SO much! My favorite is the palm tree with the sun on it on the bottom left of the second collage, I bet that is your fav, too. Why does the one look like most of it is pink? I have never seen such a thing. I know it is not a fall color, because you do not get that. And what kind of palm is in the first collage, bottom right? That one does not look like a regular palm, or a palm at all! I have so many questions! And the one right beside it, looks like fruit and pods are growing low on the trunk by the ground. And the very last one is almost white, is that how they turn when they are dying...but it looks real healthy. My word, so many new things for me! I wonder what we have a lot of here that YOU know nothing about? I am glad you took so many pics, because there are so many I have questions about. I don't think I have EVER taken one picture of anything. EXCEPT if we are at a public event, museum or something and I can only take one picture on the fly. I bet you take only one when at WM, am I right?

Neat! I did not know anything about palms...and no, seldom take just a single photo if I have time to take more. What take just one when you can take more.

Too funny! I just clicked over from 'eliminating' shots I took this morning of two iris flowers. Let's see, I kept 13 to work with and deleted 4; 17 shots of two little flowers in a vase---ha ha.
Had I been outside the numbers would have risen. Hey, it's one of our passions and it could be worse. ;)

Palms are important food sources; not least PALM OIL which is causing a huge boost in plantations in the tropical countries, at a cost to 'jungle' habitat (look up orangutans). The other major food than coconut, is dates - yes, from palms!!! YAM xx

Great shots! My favorite is your last - that cream-colored branch reminds me of coral. Have to admit I was like Ginny, believing all palms bear coconuts. (Thinking of Tom Hanks in Castaway.....)

I can't recall the last time I took more than one photo of anything. (Kodak Brownie era?) They always look so different when I view them on the big monitor!

I love the Palm tree - I think they are hard to grow here - a couple people are trying. I don't ever take 22 photos of the same thing - that is probably why my photos aren't that good!

Victor S E Moubarak said...

I'm confused. I thoughts dates are fruit. Do they start as pods?

God bless.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I will often take more than one shot when I'm outside and the sun doesn't let me see my screen. Mark always gets those pods off before they open up and make a mess.

photowannabe said...

there are sure a lot of different types of palms and their fruit.
When we go to Mexico we have to go through the desert part of California. There is grove after grove of date palms. We (the kitchen team) always stop at a certain place to get date candy and date milkshakes...really sweet but tasty. A lot of the dried fruit specialities come from the valley.

The Gang at LLB said...

Oh my goodness!! What gorgeous little pods...and the light is fantastic!

LC said...

Our neighborhood has one small palm. Last year I thought it was loaded with fruit, maybe dates. They disappeared. Your photos have me wondering if those were pods! I really wanted to get out and see them closeup, but circumstances squelched that possibility. But where wishes fail, there is MadSnapper to the rescue! Thank you and your commenting readers for a bit of palm education!

A Quiet Corner said...

You know Sandra, I never knew that until you told me about it a few years ago!! So thank YOU again...:)jp

Ruth Hiebert said...

These are interesting photos. I usually take more than one picture, but that is because my camera is set on continuous shooting.

Inger said...

I love the last picture and I'm so happy to see Ginny being so thrilled. What a nice thing to do for a friend. And, yes, I too take many pictures of the same thing.

Ella said...

I love palms and I didn't know they have pods! I learned something today!
We just got home and I'm exhausted ... it was a full day again!
Hugs for you!

Ann said...

These are really interesting. I didn't know palms had pods like that. I'm glad you took these.
I always take multiple pictures of everything

Linda said...

Thank goodness you can still take walks! Love seeing what YOU see and thank you for taking all the photos! I think this is what keeps our world from becoming too small with all the Covid thing. Seeing what others see makes our world bigger.

NanaDiana said...

I think that a lot of people that have not lived where there are palm trees assume that they all produce coconuts. There are so many varieties of palms. Good photos here! xo Diana

CheerfulMonk said...

Yes, great photos and a lot of things about palm trees that I didn't know. :)

Interesting photos of the different palm trees. Some of the leaves look really dry because of the lack of rain. I remember having a drink of date juice from a juice seller who wandered around the streets of Jerusalem. I like dates. Usually we get them at Christmas time.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Thanks for the info on palms, Sandra. And no I never snap just a single photo, does anyone?

Betty Manousos said...
