For the love of palms

I am obsessed with palms...what is it about them that makes them so loveable?

Is it because they're tropical and make us remember beachside holidays?

That they reach and stretch for the sky and when we gaze at them we  look across open space into ocean, space or distant moutains?

That when we see them we're lazing in hot, humid climates?

That their fronds are a crazy mash of shapes, darting off in different directions, and that even the old and tatty branches still look elegant against the sky?

Whatever it is, I find palms to be the most calming, happy and tranquil views I could look out on. 

To me, palms say: Hey lady, relax and enjoy your holiday...and have another wine! 

I never argue. xo
