The Palm Trees by the Pool

We have tried to explain how large these leaves are. These palms grow by dropping their lower most leaves. This shows the palms near the pool getting ready to drop some leaves.

Milano with a Fallen Leaf...

This leaf weighs about fifty pounds, give or take a little, and when it falls from the tree, which can be anywhere from twenty to forty feet at Rancho Acosta, it can do some major damage. All make a hugh crashing noise and are heavy enough that you would not want to be hit by one of these things as they fall. We do have one above the rear of our camper and we are hoping that the wind will be blowing away from the camper when it decides to fall.
