Canadian palm trees

This WordPress post comes to you courtesy of Karen Bell, photographer of these palm trees on the beach at Port Dover, Ontario. I had NO idea! My brother Jack has a palm growing in front of his Vancouver Island summer cabin, but that’s British Columbia. Ontario, too? But why not, I guess… the southernmost tip of Ontario is as far south as northern California.

[UPDATE] Brother-in-law Paul reports that the Port Dover palms spend their winters in greenhoused comfort, emerging to plant their roots in the lakeshore sands on 24th of May weekends each year. Thanks, Paul.

This post is also coming to you via Ubuntu Linux [see previous item], which I am using to do the posting. I haven’t figured out how photo uploading works yet (did that from the Mac side), but I’m making progress.
