Photo a day.....16th January.
As it is really miserable today, I thought I'd get some photos off my old computer. This is one of them. This is the flower of those palms I showed you the other day. It is about two feet across.....smells divine.....and each tree has 5 or 6 of them on....just like cheerleaders with their pompoms held at arms length! They flower in June.
This one is the pinkish version....most are white.
This one was taken at Osborne House on the terrace.
After the flower is dead there are lots of tiny white berries which the birds seem to find about now.

They are like pompoms!
I love these trees. There seems to be quite a variety of palm trees, I used to think there were just dates and coconuts..!
Possibly because I ate dates, and always saw the other in cartoons of desert islands..!
