The mystery of the second Birthday Bouquet
Nature Footstep suggested they were leaves of the Amaryllis plant. I googled it and I can see why.

Judy suggested cattails (which we apparently call bulrush here in Australia), also a possibility.

Kaylene thought they might be palm leaves, and the orange bit was where they were attached to the trunk. After speaking again to my friend, I think Kaylene might be right. My friend, Janene, said the leaves fall down onto her deck from the tree next door. She also mentioned that the orange tinged edge is where it was attached to the main tree. I must visit Janene with camera in hand!
Since we are still thinking of dried palm (leaves? stems?), here are some more palm photo art.
