POTD - Royal Palm Tree


POTD - Royal Palm Tree
©2012 Kristin Corlett

This is by far my most very favorite type of palm tree. The palm tree trunk is silky smooth, the top has a beautiful bright green band and the bushy palm fronds remind me more of a bottle brush than a palm frond.  The streets of Punta Gorda were lined with the Royal Palm, the side streets, too.  I had a permanent grin looking out the window of the car.  Just imagine what it could have been like if it was 11:11 and I was standing next to one of these beauties?!!  Oh, that's just too much to even comprehend!!   If you'd like more information on the Royal Palm, just click this link - Pristine Landscape Inc.

Enjoy!
