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.
