Yard Art

The unspoiled new palm fronds create a striking representation of playful lines and velvety textures resulting in a delightfully abstract, albeit temporary, work of art.

I say it all the time. The little details in life are often overlooked during the process of going about our daily activities. I spend a dizzying amount of time reiterating this belief of mine. Yet, as I was walking out my own front door this week, I looked to the side and was treated to a most beautiful sight already in progress. The heart of the palm tree next to the entrance was filled with new growth. These young fronds reaching for the sky were climbing out of the tree like newborns stretching upward for their mother. By the time I spied these new arms, they were already beginning the process of unraveling, revealing the tiny intricate spirals of individual leaves. I missed the chance to witness the explosion of buds as they first greeted the day. I didn't follow my own advice, and that makes me sad. This instance renews my belief in the fact we all need to slow down and take time to appreciate the beauty that is all around us.
