WPC: Twisted branches and seedpods

At the weekend, we walked down the drive to the steps just above our beach here in Umhlanga. It was a really hot day, so we sat on one of the benches in the shade. Looking up through the tree’s I spotted this bare twisty branch, and decided that it would do perfectly for this week’s WPC.

It wasn’t just this branch that was twisty. The whole dead tree was the same.

Looking across at a live tree, I noticed how twisty those branches were too.

On the way back to our house, the twisty seed pods on this palm tree caught my eye. I think it’s a Fan Palm. Do any of you know if I’m correct.

Today is my sister’s birthday, so this evening, we’ll be off up the hill to attend her dinner party. Brother-in-Law is doing the cooking, and I believe that he’s bought a decadent gateau for dessert, so I don’t even have to make one this time. Yay!!
