Stiff and brisk, but a beautiful palm. Cycas revoluta.

Great banner Fleur!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

"A fine spread" is often reserved for banquet tables, but, go figure, here's yet another application. :smily:

Another fine one, Fleur. I tip my hat to you.

Playing "catch-up" again. To me these as well as all palms are exotic displays of "tropical landscape" magic. Since childhood in the frozen winters of the upper mid west I have been fascinated with them. Their beauty and unique appearance always gave me a sense of interest. I remember watching every TV show (back then) which featured tropical or sub-tropical places so I could see the scenic backgrounds. Everyone will not be able to remember some of the early shows like that; however they included "77 Sunset Strip", "Hawaiian Eye" and even "Gilligan's Island" to name a few. It is interesting how something so simple can revive our learning experience. (Sorry, I didn't intend to write a book.) D'Oh!
Even a fool, when he shuts his mouth, is counted (as being) wise.Proverbs 17:28
