Row of palmtrees in a waterside park, Nelson, New Zealand. Definitely not tropical climes!

Those palm trees are HUGE! I've never seen such monstrosities!

They are a different type to the tall slender ones, but these must be quite old too.

A lovely capture... Beautifully composed... Don't know much about the climate in New Zealand, but I know Suzie and I were surprised as heck to see palm trees in Ireland and England on our first trip to the British Isles way back in the day... =D

Interesting how adapable they can be. Nelson has a nice micro-climate, grows world class sauvignon blanc grapes, but they have to use helicopters sometimes to save the crops from frosts! New Zealand gets cold fronts straight from the antartic regularly and is the the middle of the trade winds too. I'm NOT missing that!

It is interesting how adaptable some plants are... Bananas are a good example... We normally think of them as strictly tropical plants, like palms, but there are some varieties that can survive temps nearly down to zero F... And, where we lived in NE Ohio before moving to SW Florida, we used to get what we called "Canadian Clippers"... Cold fronts that would zip, and I mean move at a high rate of speed, down from the Arctic across the Canadian Praries and Lake Erie to slam into Northern Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York... Like you, we don't miss that at all...

Me too. So do the birds. It was one of the ways the Los Angeles reminded me of Sydney, as it's liberally sprinkled with palms too. I do have to say they do drop their old fronds (branches) a lot! There are fruitbats roosting in the palms next door along the street to me at the moment, maybe I'll be able to get close enough to photograph them? It's hard in the dark though!
