In SW FL, date palms are as common as ants at a picnic. My job requires me to have to forever prune these little beasts regularly. If I don't get the seed pods pruned out soon enough they burst. Leaving my clients pool cage looking like like someone took a giant powder puff and let loose. When not dodging thorns or cleaning up seeds I am in a constant battle with scale. Anyway the point to all this is until I read your article they we're on my top ten most hated list. I will probably still cuss when poked but my heart will soften as I remember your article and how as a little girl, you loved your little Como Palm.
Thanks for changing my thought pattern for the better!

Plantparent, my dear, you just made me laugh right out loud. Thank you!!

I'll remember your change of heart every time I'm poked by Perry's thorns.

Be well, thanks for the chuckle, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
