This is the parking lot at the Irvine Marketplace. I have been here a hundred times and just today noticed how many palm trees there are here. It’s funny, but since I’ve been blogging, I always keep my camera in my car, and this prompts me to look for photo opportunities I’ve never seen before.
I believe these palms are Queen Palms. They are extremely expensive to purchase and plant. I can only guess how much the contractor paid for these. Someday I’ll have to count them, I’m sure there are at least two hundred spanning the entire lot.
We have had record breaking heat here in So Cal this week. It’s been in the 90’s. I’m sure this is very confusing to the flora and fauna in this area. Many trees have started dropping their leaves anyway (of course, not the palms!)
