Shaggy Trees


While I was cruising around some of the historic neighborhoods over the weekend, I came across these two rather shaggy looking palm trees.  They both appear to be very large but, they could use a good tree trimming.


As a bonus, I'm throwing in this shot of another house I saw in the Brentwood neighborhood.  It's unusual to see a mural painted on the side of house but here is one.  It makes me wonder if it's a caricature of of the owner.

I love the way the tree 'cascades' down... funny painting too!

The portrait is a little shaggy, too. I wonder how difficult it is to trim those palms. Must be a bit scratchy.

They look like they could be quite old Sharon, the portrait mural made me smile :)

The head of an Indian chief came in mind watching those palms...
and I hope the owner of the house doesn't look as his mural :)

Paint, please.

Love the mural! They must not have a Homeowners Association! :)

I think the tree needs a haircut! The mural looks like a viking with multiple horns. ;)

That will be a chore to trim that palm. It's a dangerous job in the best of circumstances. I wonder if the neighbors appreciate the art work.

That mught be the owner's caricature :) not a bad idea eh? :)

The palm is lovely, although untrimmed, it does give a view.

I wouldn't want to go up in those palm trees. They are so thick as to be almost impenetrable. A few unfortunate tree trimmers have actually been killed by some of these trees and they are known to be havens for hornets and other deadly insects. I think the drawing on the little bungalow is a hoot but only a passing pleasure. Those who have to look at it every day probably hate it!

A viking must live there! I don't see many palm trees but those 2 need a haircut!

We certainly don't see palm trees here!

That's funny and the palm tree is huge though!

Bob Crowe said...

I had exactly the same thought. If I were the owner and looked like that I wouldn't seek publicity.

I wouldn't want to trim that tree. Scorpions breed in them. Maybe the guy who's caricature is painted would handle that job.

The "portrait" on the house is pretty funny, but I don't want one on my house.
