This picture was taken in a regular market in Jandira, a city of the Great Sao Paulo area. Nice colors, great flavor, healthy stuff. You can´t miss a banana.


Planta herbácea y perenne de rizoma superficial o subterráneo, que posee meristemos a partir de los cuales nacen entre 200 y 500 raíces fibrosas, que pueden alcanzar una profundidad de 1,5 m y cubrir 5 m de superficie. Del rizoma también brotan vástagos ("chupones") que reemplazan al tallo principal después de florecer y morir éste. Foto hecha en un mercado en la Grande Sao Paulo. Me gustó los colores uniformes, como oro.


Banana tem a cor do ouro, a cor do Brasil e o sabor único que o mundo inteiro aprendeu a apreciar. Esta foto foi feita num mercado em Jandira, SP.

Not only is the fruit delicious, but the flowers are unreal. The little native bush bees thinks so too :)


Sorry still snowed under with assignments and deadlines.

I have no idea what these are, I just seen them and my first reaction was that they looked just like little Bananas lol. Have a Wonderful Saturday!

Taking a well-earned banana delivery break.

Had to grab this shot quickly from the open window of a bus.

This is Small Banana Beach, a popular nude beach on the Greek island of Skiathos. This beautiful and secluded beach is located right next to the neighboring Big Banana Beach. The two beaches are seperated by a small rocky outcrop.

Naturism is still really popular in Greece and most of Europe, so beaches like this are common. Only a few beaches are designated "nude" beaches, but topless is legal everywhere. That's why there were a few topless women on the neighboring Big Banana Beach, and the nearby Koukounaries Beach.


I was actualy looking at pictures of this beach, and everyone had clothes on, so i wasn't expecting to see any nudists, but almost everyone on the beach was naked. Mostly older people, but a few young people as well. But most of the young people were on the neighboring Big Beach.

I felt a little awkward with clothes on, so I stripped down as well and went skinny dipping.

It was very hard to find an empty spot. There were people everywhere!


These two beaches are twins to Big and Little Makena Beach on Maui.

Taken at Centennial Park Botanical Gardens.


The banana heart is the flower of the banana plant. From it grow the fruits.


In the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries, the banana heart itself is edible at that stage when it is cooked as a vegetable. It is most commonly served as a salad or as a sauteed vegetable dish often with coconut milk.


Thanks to Pareé for the texture.


☙•Thank you for your visit and kind comments. Have a wonderful and restful weekend, everyone!

Banana flowers are not hard to find in the tropics. They usually come in maroon color and sometimes pale.This is so far the first pink and the prettiest banana flower I've ever seen =) And different too as it protruded upwards rather than the usual hanging down excited with this find

Thanks so very much for your visits and faves!

Car Journaling



I can't ever look at a banana and NOT think of the song "Yes, we have some bananas" ... and so we do ... and did on our drive to Charleston. I worked on this while C drove and I juggled potholes, a water jar, paints and journal.


it's back to work today -- but oh how good it was to be home a few days. The weather couldn't have been nicer -- high 60s, low 70sF -- and I was able to get out in the garden, weed, prune, hit the most noxious weeds with Round-Up, and get more than a few minutes of much needed natural Vitamin D!


This weekend we turn the clocks forward for Daylight Savings ... giving more light to our evenings ... yep, spring is fast approaching!


Hope your week is great!

Two bananas are better than one.

The banana tree is common in Kwa-Zulu Natal but not the Western Cape. So it was a delightful surprise to find this wild banana growing in my area. I've had great fun taking pictures of this beautiful tree (well, technically a herb, I believe).

Botanical name: Musa balbisiana.

Family: Musaceae.

Growing wild in Mountainside, Gordon's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa.
