Palmate:

Thanks! I wanted a closer photo of the fronds, however, the late afternoon sun was causes some shadowing issues. : > )

I'll be going back soon to walk my dog again.

There's an an incredible palm garden in this section of Balboa Park...which I think is fairy new...with the exception of the old palms.
