palm or plant - help

Pin It now! I'm in a quandary ... can't see the wood for the trees kind of..... and would appreciate your input.

If you remember (https://tipsaroundthehome.blogspot.com/2022/09/idea-in-progress.html ), I had extracted and adapted the pea pod motif from Endrucks' pattern #25 to make fronds for a palm tree. I also had most of the layout in my head, barring the minute details.

I have 6 fronds and the question is whether I should continue with the Palm Tree idea or switch to a Snake Plant?
PALM  TREE?
or
SNAKE  PLANT ?

Please help me decide. At this stage hubby thinks it looks like a snake plant, and I agree with him. However going ahead I see the palm tree take shape, too.


Over 10 days back I had shared this collage in our FB group -
The 4th frond (below) looks like a banana, doesn't it? Or an orange slice. Or when arranged together, it could well shape into a pumpkin! 
Inspired by this, one of our members has tatted a pair of sweet peas and carrots which will be shared here once the event is over.
Stephanie W really got the creative juices flowing with her harvest theme idea! Thank you 💕

  1. Do both. The palm tree would have fewer fronds than the snake plant and be to a different scale, wouldn’t it?

  4. Both options are great. With a long brown trunk, this would be the perfect palm tree. A snake plant in the form of a bush.

  5. I agree with other comments, both are great options. The palm needs the trunk though. The plant is already there.

    1. Or perhaps the plant needs a pot 😁🌿🔆 It's going to be a palm - going with the flow of the polls and my original layout 🤣
