Palms at Night - #ThursdayTreeLove

I love palm trees.

Back in my 20's, I lived in Florida for two years.  I fell in love with palms, and I still love them, over 40 years later.
Palms withstand the hurricane winds Florida sometimes experiences, bending and yielding so they will live another day.  But, in doing so, they do not give up their essence.  They remain who they are.

I have much to learn from them.

I saw these lit up palm trees in Madeira Beach, Florida.  It's not your normal view, and I had to take a picture.

  3. One of my cousins also loves palm trees. I've never given them much thought. They're everywhere, so to me they're just background.

    1. Funny what is in our own "backyard" that we don't see. I'm amazed by people who love my snow photos until I realize that some of them have never seen snow in person.
