Twin palms

Downey palm treesDowney palm trees

Yesterday, I showed you Tweedy Lane lined with palms, giving the street a very stately look. But what about the backyard palms, the ones that don't line a street?

I've often wondered about this pair. I'm guessing they're nearly 100 feet tall. They must have been planted long ago, possibly before the house was built in 1936. I'm not sure how you're supposed to appreciate your tree where you have to drop your head completely back before you can see the fronds...
