Amazing “palm” plant looks extraterrestrial!


Although the foliage sure looks like a palm, this "tree" was on the ground in a flower bed--so it may not be a "tree" but in fact something else

On our recent getaway to Peljesac peninsula with my sister and her husband from the the states, we took a quick hop on the 15 minute ferry from Orebic to Korcula town.  Along the ramparts, close to the lookout with a mounted cannon, I saw this really strange palm plant with an enormous “flower” in the center.

the central flower of this palm plant was amazingly intricate

The closer I got, the spookier it was…and the close up of what is inside this “flower” is practically extraterrestrial.  I’m just happy my mobile phone camera was able to get such cool shots…..thankyou Blackberry for my Z10…probably the only one in Split who has one!

Wow....it's alive!!!

Where is Sigourney Weaver? It’s an Alien spawn….and wow….it’s alive!!!
