Fishtail palms, not sea grapes

Fishtail palms, with inflorescences at center

Broom for stairs

Nancy looked into it and the palm trees dropping fruits on the stairs are not sea grapes but instead fishtail palms.  And as we discovered today while cutting off and disposing of several more big, big inflorescences using the saw-on-a-pole she brought, the fruits irritate the skin.  We had to go wash our hands at length to reduce the itching to a bearable level.

Nancy donated an old broom for sweeping the stairs, so that we can sweep the fruits off the stairs without touching them and becoming irritated.
