Two Surprises in Ireland

Palm trees???
Actually, I did know about this, but I didn't expect there to be so many of them. The weather is moderate enough to allow them to grow (they are not native, by the way) but they don't
necessarily thrive there. My question is why??? Why plant one? I don't think they are attractive and let's not pretend we're in Florida.

The other surprising thing (and I did not know about this before I went) is that fuchia grows wild in Ireland in big huge bushes. They are beautiful. I approve. :-/

Just wanted to share.
