sago palm along the street
One never ever knows what surprieses can be found on just a walk
down a sidewalk!

here is a sago palm, one of the largest diameter leafspans that I ever see. This is a "Female" plant, they are either male or female and that ball in the center is the seed sack

a closeup of this sack is here

A street looking to the North. Talllahassee, florida usa.

Near sunset, the shadows creep across the sidewalk.

As i say, just a walk down a sidewalk in one's own backyard, can produce surprises! This sago palm is about one block from where I live.
