I am no fan of palm trees.  In fact, I think they're rather ugly, and I am eager to fell the one that inhabits our front lawn in favor of a deciduous or some such leafy tree native to this area.  But, being the true softie that I am, I wouldn't take down our palm tree without regret.  And, when I come across one living a solitary life, I feel a degree of compassion.  Go figure!

Palms are part of the Monocot genus that includes grass; and, like grass, they are not good photo subject matter. The more spectacular palms are unfortunately tropical as in South Florida; but check out the FSCJ South Campus Palm Garden. Some there are quite striking.

Thanks for the information, A. I will visit the garden. I am curious. Maybe there will be some I will like after all.
