These are a pile of Queen Palm seed pods. They encase the seed rack before it opens up displaying small white to yellow flowers. The interior of the pods tend to stay brown while the exteriors fade from the sun. After flowering — seeds turn green then bright orange. The pheasants love the orange seeds and can be seen feasting under the trees quite often. They are the perfect spot to hang the hammocks... when we can.
|Love how this one split right down the center.|
|The queen palm patch in the yard and John trimming away the pods. They are quite dangerous as they are very spear like. It's not unusual to go out and find them speared into the ground after having shot to the ground.|
