I wonder if these are used as umbrella's - look just like the spokes of one.

This looks like one of those unusual shots that you have to guess what it is. I love the way the light falls on the leaves.

The rain would fall in stripes, Hermes!

Hello Weaver of Grass.

The leaves are lighter than this when the sun shines but the pot isn't very interesting so I was glad it didn't show up in this photo!

Heck of a big hand to have a palm that size!

Very interesting shot, I really like the play of the dark palm against the light beams.

One of my favourite leaves. Always a pleasure to watch them slowly unfold. Compensation for having to drag the pot in and out of the greenhouse each year.

I really like this picture. Very nice.

Gordon - the palm leaf is the hand of The Hulk.

Sometimes the wrong kind of light can work wonders.

Easy Gardener.

This Windmill Palm stays outside all year. But it's in need of re-potting - that'll be a task!

Thanks Debbie.

I'm glad you like the Windmill Plant photo.
