Palm tree fronds~Mellow Yellow Monday~103111


No, this isn't my hair on a Monday morning!  These are palm tree fronds.  I found them up at the Santa Rosa mountain visitor center yesterday morning when I was out taking photos for Sunday Stills Challenge.  The quail were out feeding, the doves were out...it was a beautiful autumn morning!  The Cahuilla Indians, who lived in this valley, would cut the fronds and make their homes out of them.  I've walked into a palm grove and it is always cooler inside the grove.  They do a good job shading us from the desert sun!  Mellow Yellow Monday for October 31, 2011.

  4. I like the textures of these close ups. In Mexico along the Caribe palm fronds are used for roofing and also provide great shade yet allow a gentle breeze with a soft rattle.
