Palm Tree Seed Pods

What can you do with a palm seed pod?


Well, my man was feeling energetic and started beautifying our backyard.


We have several mature palm trees in our garden, so now & again some of the older leaves sag and need trimming.
They need to be sawn off, which isn't really a job for me.
But I at least held the ladder!





And you can see the beautiful gifts we received as a result of this not-so-hard work.







Immediately my boys took one each for a boat and a toy bed.


I sorted through them to find the perfect Seasonal Dinner Table Display Dish




And with the remainder?
They make great gifts.
I let my friends sort through to choose their own. One has hers across the fireplace mantle.
Mother Nature has many gifts to share.
Sometimes it's just a matter of looking from a different angle!
