I belive these are Bromeliads, but maybe some of you who know more about plants can tell me for sure (I will have to ask my cousin, Nola of the Alamo-North blog, who's studying to be a Master Gardener). No matter what they are...aren't they amazing!
I snapped these photos last month at Northpark Mall in Dallas, TX. It's been forever since we had been there. I think it's probably my favorite of any malls or shopping centers. It's always decorated with gorgeous plants and has that beautiful dancing fountain. And I would even be satisfied just window shopping all those great displays! All the stores are so cool! (There's even a Betsey Johnson there now!) If I lived close, I would do my walking there!
By the way, I looked up Bromeliads in Wikipedia and learned that pineapples are Bromeliads! (And I always thought they were a fruit, hee! hee!) Weird!
Have a good evening, and have sweet dreams....Patti
