Coconut Palm, November’s Plant of the Month

Coconut palm trees in SnapseedI always long to be in a warmer and drier place than Vancouver in November. This year I headed to Mexico for my sun fix and discovered my plant of the month: coconut palm trees.

Here is my favourite shot of a coconut palm with the Super Moon setting over the Pacific Ocean.
