Palm tree

These big palms are a part of the Victor Harbor landscape, many planted along the main roads in the centre of town and with the Norfolk Island pines on the beach side. I even have one that came up as a seedling in our back garden.
This one tops the two storey bank building by the railway tracks opposite my second favorite coffee shop.The other night we watched some teen agers having a massive sword fight with a couple of the fronds! They rustle quite alarmingly in a high wind.

Palms, particularly coconut palms are trees that I really miss here. Very nice rendition, particularly the pattern of the trunk.
