Can't See The Woods For The Trees - #336


Palm trees are not actually tress. There are approx 130 species of Palms covering a wide range of climates. These Palms here in Dubai are usually Date Palms - The date palm belongs to the family Palmae, genus Phoenix, species dactylifera.

DAtes are seen as very healthy - however, go easy on them - they pack in 3,000 cals per KG and are a natural laxative...

This is a fine photo, but I thought you did not "do" plants. Is this yet another "sortie" by the intrepid Sir Bluey?
