Arabia Mountain and The Monastery on Saturday (they are very close in distance) and then down to my Dad's on the Sunday. Watching the Olympics and the Atlanta Braves in between...beautiful weekend!
Look at how big this banana tree has grown this summer. (Can you see that it has just started to rain?) Do you think that is is possible that this tree might have some real bananas on it?)
Yes! We have some bananas, we have some bananas today! (To paraphrase an old song!)
My brother told me that this huge blossom comes up on the tree and then the fruit comes up from that, see the bananas above the reddish bloom? I know nothing about bananas except seeing them in stores...I have never seen them growing!
The rain only lasted for about two minutes and then, bright sunshine! Can you see the rain dripping off of this beautiful okra blossom? Isn't it wonderful that this turns into okra? Reach for the sky, okra pods!
Hope you enjoy visiting at my Dad's with fields of peas, wide open skies and blossoming trees!
