Some of the dictionary definitions of texture.... 'the grain of feel of a thing' or 'feel, touch, appearance, surface, grain' or 'the feel, appearance or consistency of a substance or fabric.'
The contrasting textures in this palm are fantastic, there is the super smooth, bright green of the stem contrasted with the fibrous fronds as they break away from the trunk. I almost feel as if I should be making paper or something from this fabulous fibre! It has been so dry and windy lately that any plant would struggle to survive but my trusty old palm is doing quite well despite the adverse conditions. Thank goodness we had some beautiful rain this morning!
