WASHINGTONIA starts when the giraffes heart can no longer be heard. WASHINGTONIA is an alternative name for Athens, a place where people, like animals, fall into summertime sadness because of the heat. WASHINGTONIA is the only palm tree that its heart is not devoured by the red beetle. Because it's heart is small and dry and no one likes small and dry hearts.
