Symbol of Southern California?

Felicia pointed out a few days ago that it is hard to get a landscape shot in San Diego without a palm tree in it - and she was right!

And now a little plam tree trivia - although the palm tree has come to be symbolic of Southern California, the only truly native palm is the California or Washington palm (Washingtonia filifera). All other varieties were originally imported. Southern California saw a huge surge in palm plantings during the 1920s and 1930s, many of which still line Southern California streets today.


  1. I love those palm trees that yes, they are sssooo Cali ^-^ BTW this one is another wonderful shot !
