Here, see that little stumpy thing right next to to big dying thing? Let me get a bit closer, like so …
No. Doesn’t even look like the same species of palm tree but more like a removed appendix of the other sort of palms we have in our garden. That thing seems to have quite an extended root system. But ain’t it a fukn wonder? In these times of dramatic drought, all around withering plants, this little thing, quasi secretly, pops its head out of the dried up ground. And the baby does even look fresh, well kinda.
So we gotta wait and see if the baby palm will make it thru the critical first few weeks and months of its fragile life.
