I love this blues sky and just splendid tree!
Did you know Janice,most of the cabbage trees that are sold in nurseries here are grown in overseas laboratories from microscopic slivers of leaf on a culture like agar. Previously they were grown from sliced sections of the root placed on a sandy seed raising mix.We did this when I was doing a certificate in horticulture a year or so ago.
I think they look like something out of a Dr Suess book.

Excelent capture and well done on this composition. An interesting looking tree. Cool.
Great one Janice! Simply but very clear and beautifull composition. I love NZ blue sky and fresh greens of Ti Kouka! Note is also interesting.
We have got three days weekend so I'll try to write more.
Beautiful shot Janice! I liked this Ti Kouka ,especially 'scented with a honey fragrance'...It should be very nice to have this kind trees around you;) Thanks for sharing this shot with your complete notes:)

Great choice of cropping, as well as the colors. Compliments for this one.
I thought it was a cordyline from the thumbprint. I only know it by its latin name, and I think it is also called dragon palm. I have 4 in my garden, your plants seems to flourish in Sunny SA, Janice! I also have an "elephant foot", maybe family to the one withthe fat feet you speak of. Nice pic, TFS
