CURLY NEW LEAVES OF FERN PALM, WHICH REMIND ME SOMETHING (ソテツのカールした若葉、何かに似てるな・・)


Fern palm (Cycas revoluta, or Sotetsu in Japanese) is growing its new leaves
 beside the parking lot of our house.
My wife cut old leaves about two weeks ago.
Taking a closer look of them, a tip of each leaflet is curled・・・




我が家の駐車場の横で
ソテツの若葉が成長してきています. 
2週間前に家内が古い葉を切っていました.
よ~く見てみると、それぞれの葉の先端がカールしています・・・



Those spiral curls reminded me spit curls, which Ms. Lemon
in the TV drama series of 'Agatha Christie's Poirot' sported:)

これらの渦巻きを見ると、テレビドラマシリーズの「名探偵ポワロ」で
ミス・レモンが額の生え際につけていた渦巻きカールを思い出しました(笑)
