In the centre of İzmir, the western Turkish city we visited for a family wedding recently, is a central park – this rather impressive avenue of palms is at one one the entrances!

I was wondering if the palms are trimmed or do they neatly grow like that? i like the street lamps in between them. Thanks for sharing.
They have to be trimmed every year. The video attached in this link shows it very ewell. Basically, the lower fronds are cut, then a year later they are dry, and can easily be removed, making the bare trunk higher.
That is so impressive Spike … 🙂

It’s our driveway actually…. yeah right 😀
Ha ha ..
I perhaps forget how interesting our country is sometimes after so long here 🙂
Your country is amazing. Ancient in the most profound of ways. The Cradle of Civilization!
let’!s hope it’s not the grave too.
