My life in pictures ... what inspires me,
what I'm learning, who I'm sharing time with,
what makes me tick.
What an absolutely cool subject, paired with the perfect title. Love it.
That's such a cool combo of contrasting shapes.
cool shot with great contrast. what kind of plant is that?
Great shot, wonderful angle on it!
This is such a visually interesting shot. I love those curly q's.
This is an awesome shot! I love the combo of the straight green stalks and the curly strands.
This is saw palmetto. The stems are spiny enough to slice leather, hence the name. It is important in holding the sand and building dunes, and its roots are fire resistant so it quickly recolonizes. Native Americans used the fruits as sedatives and to treat infection...nowadays they sell it health food stores for "male reproductive health", I believe. Indians also used the points with the attached confetti for sewing.
We have lots of palmetto in Texas but I don't ever recall seeing the curly cue thingies.Susan
