This rather healthy plant grows next to the Natural Textile Company. It's on Oak Street in Vancouver, between 7th and 8th Avenue. The simplicity of the store window and the thickness of the leaves just around the corner make an interesting contrast, I think.
I found this large palm-like plant interesting. I have to say I'm still surprised when I come across palm fronds in the Pacific Northwest. We seem so far from the more tropical climates where they thrive.
