Have you noticed the palm trees recently planted by the new owners of the Golden Eagle Shopping Center on East Washington Street? Believe it or not palms were once used as street trees in Petaluma as can be seen in this Sonoma County Library photo taken in 1926.

Who knows maybe it won't be long before we see a palm or two planted at the depot site on Lakeville Street.
