Hilltop Palms Unbound

Just in time for post-Thanksgiving shopping along Hilltop Drive, the previously bundled-up new palms have been released from their bondage. Ta da! Giant feather dusters!

The thing is, is it my imagination or do the palms look like they’ve had haircuts or something? I could have sworn that when I looked at them in their tied position for these months of construction, it appeared that when the ropes were cut, the fronds would certainly touch tall vehicles. Could be wrong. Maybe I need more turkey . . .
