Palm Sunday

With April.

A palm tree grows in England. At the BBC, Ring road palm tree 'listed' as a historic monument
An unassuming tree growing on a central reservation along Derby’s ring road has been marked as an historic monument by internet pranksters. The diminutive palm sits on the dividing barrier between lanes of A601 The Upas and nearby slip roads, and is passed by thousands of motorists daily.

But in June, the tropical tree was named the Derbados Palm Tree - and given a handful of five-star reviews on Google Maps. One reviewer said it was “the original, the best” adding: “What a welcome when coming back from outside the county.”
