Skywatch Friday #4


You don't often see the words "Canada" and "palm tree" in the same sentence. But these fronds are flourishing on a property up in Phase Four. Gabriola is full of surprises.

It's been mentioned on the Pasadena blogs that their palm trees are suffering from a fungus. Canada may the the last refuge for the species!

No sweet Virginia, I'm not pulling your leg. That palm (and another just like it) are indeed right here on Gabriola.
