I recently updated my cover photo for my Facebook page from a zen garden view, to palm trees. I got to thinking about an interview I’d seen on television several years ago with Katharine Hepburn. When asked what species of tree she was most like, she said a large oak. I thought it sounded appropriate for her.
With so many beautiful trees in the world, it’s hard to pick just one that’s your favorite, but for me, I’d say the palm tree. Why? Because they can bend with the wind, I love the sounds of the fronds in the wind and they’re beautiful. Okay, and they’re synonymous with warm weather, which is probably a big part of the reason I’ve always enjoyed them.
This photo is one I took in a botanical garden filled with numerous palm species from throughout the world.
