la palma


Here's something you don't see everyday (well, for you who don't live in the tropics) and I thought it's make a good 'not-in-the-car' choice of picture. These are the seeds of a breed of palm tree. When the seeds mature, they turn into bright red berry-looking seeds.

It makes me feel like running my fingers through them. I'd like to see them when they turn red too.
LOL about not being in the car!
