Bom dia JM!
Beautiful green in this picture! It's amazing to see this tropical plant growing so well in Portugal!

Desejo à você um ensolarado final de semana!

This is a beautiful shot; love the colours and the composition. The plants fronds remind me of ceremonial headdresses on Native American dancers doing ritual dances.

My camera is in the specialist's shop, waiting for an estimate. Perhaps it just needs cleaning..I hope rather than major repairs. I hope to be back soon.

Never heard of a Cycad before. Nice lines and curves.

My neighbour two doors down has a massive cyad in his front garden that occupies the entire space. I followed it last Spring through its entire flower cycle. Very prehistoric looking ...

They almost look like peacocks with their green tails fanned out. Beautiful.

Talk about awesome! Fantastic shot! We've got one of these in our yard but it sure doesn't look like this one!
