I have often seen these plants which look a bit like a stunted Palm Tree except they actually flower and are called Cycad’s.

The attached shot doesn’t do this Cycad justice as the bulb is bigger than a soccer ball and looks to have hundred’s of pink seeds ready to go when the plant is ready which will be very soon by the looks.

I took this particular shot as I happen to like the pattern on the bulb as well as the pattern outwards that the leaves give. I had to be careful of the leaves as they are sharp!

Anyway, enjoy!
