Palms swaying in the Cupertino breeze

Palm Avenue in Cupertino lives up to its name.


Most of the time streets named “Palm Avenue” don’t live up to their moniker, but not so with this so-named street in Cupertino, close to Cupertino Bike Shop on S. Foothill Boulevard.

I counted 30 palms, although a few of them were the lower California fan palm, as well as the Sago palm.

I’m not sure about the tall palms. They look like coconut palms, but it’s too cold here, so it’s more likely a variety of the California fan palm (Washingtonia filifera). Maybe somebody knows.

    Mexican Fan Palm (Washingtonia robusta). We have 356 of them in our aptly-named Palm Haven neighborhood. (We also have about three thousand palm fronds in the street after a wind storm.)
