My Knitted Florida: Foxtail Palm Seeds

Hello there, it has been a while since my last post; I hope you are all keeping well.

It has been a busy couple of months for me. My husband was travelling frequently and my work place was in overtime mode. I tried to keep up with my blog reading and with my crafts.

I was sitting outside one day with Poppy and knitting a mohair sweater when I noticed that one of our Foxtail Palm trees was fruiting for the first time.
The seeds are so round and so much bigger than other palm trees. Their color is so beautiful. It ranges from gold, orange, pumpkin, to a deep red as they ripen.
I know I should have carried on with my mohair sweater…but I simply can’t help myself. I just have to make a palm seed or two. I have so much fun. Cute right?
