Who says there aren't any palm trees in New York City? I found them on the rooftop of a building on 5th Avenue. The picture I took in the city evokes the same feeling of rest and relaxation as the one by the pool in Southern Italy. Though in two different countries, the palm trees have a unifying effect, and the flowers and shrubbery bring nature into both settings. The clear water in the pool reflects the blue sky in the city. The palm trees look as tall as the skyscrapers, creating an effect of harmony between nature and architecture. So cozy and inviting. Why don't you sit down and stay a while?
