Big, robust, seeding windmill in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
These windmills at the Royal Rose B&B are frequently photographed and posted to this board by us locals and surprised tourists.
But few people think to walk around back to where the biggest palms live. I'll spare you the pics of the shorter male (12'), which is beautiful in the spring covered with yellow inflorescence. The female towers over the male. Estimate it between 15 and 20'. This time of year, it's covered with developing seeds. Some predicted her demise when she started peaking over the 6' privacy fence which blocked winter winds, but apparently nothing bothers this beast.
The owners always let me harvest the seeds. I'm gonna need a taller ladder and bigger bin this year! Thanks for looking.
