Palm Fronds (Myakka River State Park)—1


December 21, 2015

Husband David and I drove out to the Myakka River State Park yesterday morning. We arrived about 8:30, in time to catch some early-morning light. Palm fronds delight me whatever their stage: shiny new, starting to senesce, or dried-out dead.

  2. There are some totally dead fronds in there, but you have to look for them. More dead ones are coming in the next few days, though. Senescent is one of those biology words David taught me; I like it, too.

    • Oh, I like your take on this, Robert! I do enjoy the muddle of what I think of as the jungles of Florida.
