8:52 Amuse Yourself – however you want!

 

It took me a couple of bananas before I got this sort of right, but I did have fun with it! The peels wilted so quickly, and of course, the flying pieces wanted to give in to gravity :)

 

I am recovering nicely from my eye surgery, and can see so clearly with my right eye now, but can't look at a screen for too long. I will do my best to fave or comment on your recent images really soon!

Two bananas are better than one.

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.

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.

L is Good : )

This banana tree has been a bit of a photographic obsession, which is almost, but not quite, over.

Botanical name: Musa balbisiana.

Family: Musaceae.

Friends had been visiting for a couple of days...he came rushing in the kitchen one morning, "Quick!!! Have you got a banana??"

This arrived in the mail several days later.

 

Thass my story an I'm stickin' to it.

 

Photo & post processing are his, mosaic artwork is mine.

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!

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.

The big carpenter beetle, probably Dorcacerus barbatus (here, Brazil, besouro serra-pau). He likes ripe bananas. Minas Gerais' interior.

We're Here! participating in some intellectual fruit destruction. I decided to deconstruct a banana. I used a six-inch KitchenAid Zirconia Oxide Ceramic chef knife.

Car Journaling

Journal

 

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!

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.

I am not sure what this thing is but it was at the End of the Banana tree and the banana's were above it. I thought it had very pretty colors.

MUST BE SEEN LARGE

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 position...got excited with this find actually...lol...

Alleppey, Kerala, India

 

The banana plant grows as a series of suckers from a rhizome. Each stem gradually swags downwards and produces at its tip the male flowers, which are sterile. The female flowers, which produce the edible fruit without fertilization, are found further along the stem. After a stem has produced a crop of fruit, it dies and is replaced by a new stem from a bud further along the rhizome. A banana plant may live for over 60 years. They are picked and exported green and ripened aboard refrigerated ships. The plant is destroyed after cropping.

 

Banana is one of the common agricultural item in rural India. Throughout the country one can taste the different variety of Banana. The taste also varies from the Northern states to the South and from the East to the West. A special variety of Banana is cultivated in the Kerala soil, which is a part of the daily menu of the people of the state. This variety of banana is a part of the Onam Sadya during the Onam festival in the month of September.
