A  L  O  H  A !
Palms Punching Above Royal Poincianas 

" It is the nature 
of the strong heart, 
that like the palm tree 
it strives ever upwards 
when it is most burdened. "
                                  Philip Sidney

Hand Of The Gardener

" Life is the art 
of drawing 
without an eraser. "  
                      John W. Gardner

Palms are dancers who sigh,
wave their fingers, and beguile!

" The actor should be 
able to create the 
universe in the 
palm of his hand. "
      Laurence Olivier

Thank YOU
for looking in,
dear Friend!

How many kinds of palm trees are there? They aren't all coconut are they?

Erasers are only good if you have regrets you know.
Loved my time among the palms while I was in Florida.

Aloha from a rather rainy day

Palms are so tropical, where plants and trees grow so lush and colorful. There's for places where nature has given a bounty of colorfulness. No erasers available for real life; regrets are a waste of time.

Lovely pictures of palms. I have always like palms. "Life is the art of drawing without an eraser." - so true.

So would you say it's palmy where it's balmy? I loved the shot with the hand of the gardener.

Life is drawing without an eraser. Indeed.

Palms swaying in the breeze - no need to erase that, Cloudia!

More beauty. More wisdom.
As always, many thanks.

They're such lovely trees, Cloudia!

I shall be looking at palm trees in a different way now.

Hi Cloudia,
I love the quotes and the photos - the first photo in particular, your banner and the use of vignette.
Have a Happy Week!
Peace :)
