A fantastic view looking upwards, Stan! Fifteen years and you've been 'patiently' waiting...they are well worth the wait!

Thanks Seagirl and Kate. I'm sure I planted it and said "One day"..and it's pretty much there.

Are they Archontophoenix cunninghamiana?

Yes. King palms or aka Bungalow's. The one has an especially fat trunk.

Thanks Andy. It also turns out that they are ignored by gophers. I think that explains why they and Howea are standards. Other palms gophers will feast on.
