  1. Yes! . . . that’s what my first response was. I’ve always looked at the palm and the cabbage trees (ti kouka, cordyline australis) and wished I could climb up and relieve them of their flowers after they bloom and they’ve harded off. The other day I saw a truck on it’s way to the green waste dump and almost followed it . . . but I would have been very late for an appointment and they would not have understood such behaviour.

      we work as gardeners looking after inner city gardens & throw so many palm inflorescences & fronds away, I only have space to keep a couple as they are big things, this one is about 2 metres tall and well over a metre wide!

    The scale of this piece makes me swoon.

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks for visiting Judy & re scale… this is a challenge I seldom work on anything bigger than a book but this one wants to be made, what else can I do but comply!

    Is it being held by the tendrils?! There is magic afoot here…(or is it “ahand”, with the alchemy that your fingers create?

    The Palm inflorescence is one of my favourite items. I have a few smallish ones in my tiny house and have often used them over the years. But this one of yours is magnificent! I’m loving what you are doing with it.
