Tree Tuesday - Necklaces galore

another tree that i would love to know and write more about... i marvel at this beauty every time i go to the horticultural gardens.. it brings odd childhood memories to mind... gypsy jewellery vendors with string upon string of beads precariously balanced on each outstretched hand...
Click on the pictures and you will see that there are two types of "necklaces" to chose from! Lovely, isnt it?!

a member of the madras naturalists society has helped identify this as the 'caryota urens' - commonly called the fish tail palm/jaggery palm/toddy palm.
