I forgot about the bananas. Picked them last week--almost ready to eat!
Planted some Tesla and Leaf wheels last week.
These appear to be a version called "dedo de moça" in Brazil. biological name capsicum baccatum. They grow in widely different sizes and shapes.
Ours are going out of season, but we still have a few. Normally here they are in greatest profusion in our fall and it is now late winter.
These are green ones in my garden right now. Three weeks ago there was a vast profusion.
We are fans of orchids, so we've more than a hundred along a wall beside our house. Here are three that are blooming right now.
Thanks for the thread! I have some contributions form Rio de Janeiro.
Here is one of my all time favorites.
It is named curupita in Portuguese cannon ball tree in English. When it flowers, as you see, the flowers emerge from the trunk. In public spaces there are quite a few in Brazil from the North to as far south as Rio de Janeiro, creating delightful ambience. This one is near our house. We have two, but they are still small and not so prolific as this one.
Beautiful flowers. You should put your location in your profile so it shows up beside your posts. I wondered where you could grow Orchid's outside until I saw your post above. Those are my wife's favourite but we can only grow them on window sills indoors here.
What is it you're pickling, Ohmman? Traditional cucumbers or are you going Korean and pickling anything that once grew?
OK, then there is this one:
This is Mascagnia Iliacina, called Lavender orchid vine in English. It is native to the Americas from Southern Mexico to South Central Brazil. This one we planted about ten years ago. It keeps growing. There is another one about three times this size. couple blocks away. Around this time of year they bloom. From a distance they look almost like clouds. They have no relationship to true orchids but I really love this one.
