Those palm trees in Pinellas Park




We here at Bay Buzz love to hear from readers. Among the reasons why: After reading an earlier post about the installation of palm trees in a Pinellas Park median, one clearly botanically-savvy reader who called himself "John" pointed out that those palm trees, well, let's just say they ain't from around here.

So why is Pinellas Park -- which the last time we checked was still a city in Florida --  planting palm trees grown Arizona? Read Anne Lindberg's story here.
