(that would be an understatement).
I especially love to watch their swaying fronds from a distance, waving in the tropical breezes. The wind creates wild, new hairdo's on these graceful ladies.
Curiosity got a hold of my shutter finger though. Have you ever wondered what was underneath all that beautiful palm hair?
Stand at the base of a palm tree and look up. Be careful-- you just might get an eye full of sunshine!
If you dodge the tropical sun rays streaming through the fronds, you can get a better look at the beauty hidden there.
The different shapes and colors of seeds remind me of a kaleidoscope.
A house guest once asked me, "Why do they paint the tops of the palm tree trunks?"
I replied, "They don't paint them... but God does." :)
If you look closely you just might find a little green guy, scurrying up the trunk trying to get in the 'safe zone' that matches his own coloring.
No need to be alarmed- he wants to get away from you more than you want to run from him!
My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD;
In the morning I will direct it to You,
And I will look up.
Keep looking up!
