SX9472 : Wrapped up against cold winds

near to Teignmouth, Devon, Great Britain

Wrapped up against cold winds
Wrapped up against cold winds
The palms, that is, although the people are dressed for warmth in a cool breeze. The palms along the seafront are wrapped in horticultural fleece for winter protection. The threat is as much from shredding, salt-laden easterlies as from cold, although frost is rare so close to the sea. My recollection is that inside the bundles are Cabbage Palm, (Cordyline australis) not a true palm but a member of the Lily family the Dwarf Fan Palm (Chamaerops humilis) and New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax mainly).
