This Palm tree standing tall caught my eye because it was standing tall.
Don’t palms always stand tall ?
Well according to Nergish ( May God rest her soul) peevishly pointed out to the Garden Secretary of our building society that the palms in the building were far from straight . In fact , some of them were leaning precariously close to the building .
“Why can’t they grow like the trees in Singapore? ” she boomed in her authoritarian voice .
“But auntie , they are just growing .What can I do ? ”
“You can tie them by rope and male them grow in a straight line ! And upright !”
Poor Darcy ( the garden secretary) didn’t give the slightest attention and the trees continued their leaning trajectory.
Which is why I was amazed that this tree actually grew straight and tall .
I wonder if it is a purely ornamental variety that only grows this way.
What do you think ?
