365 Photo Challenge : Day 1
This is the first year I noticed the berries on our Palm Tree were red. Upon further research I believe it is called a Christmas Palm
During summer months the Christmas Palm produces light green flower buds that turn into creamy blossom. Unisexual flowers are held by 2ft long branched stalks that emerge from the area where the crownshaft attaches to the trunk. In December flowers are followed by green oval fruits that turn bright red as they ripe. Berrie-like fruits are 1 inch long and 1/5 inch wide. They hang in clusters looking like Christmas ornament, therefore palm’s common name is Christmas Palm

My mother purchases my children an ornament every year just like my grandmother use to do. When they move out they will be able to take their ornaments with them and it will be the first ones to adorn their own Christmas trees.

365 Photo Challenge : Day 7
My daughter is a night owl, which means when she was on vacation from school she went to bed and got up late. Monday night she couldn’t sleep so I was not surprised that by 7:30 we found her here…
