Nature

Don't you think that Mother Nature is wonderful? Inspired by Katherine's recent New Zealand fruit photos (Last Visible Dog) I give you some of more of the Earth's bounteous fruits below:-












From top to bottom - The Daphne Pumpkin, The Sweet Katherine Fruit (lovely and juicy), Stunted Clewley Peppers, The Robert Hybrid Brague Carrot and The Pudding Fruit (Grows well in Yorkshire)

  4. Oh dear. What IS IT about Englishmen and 'humorous-shaped' vegetables?? Terry Pratchett in "The Truth" expounded on it, but I didn't really believe him until now.

  5. JENNYTA - I have been "on" various forms of turkey.
    DAPHNE - It's not help I need it's more rude vegetables!
    ARTHUR CLEWLEY - Filth? What do you mean? I am simply celebrating Nature's diversity. Happy Christmas to you and yours and especially your great grandchildren!
    KATHERINE - Sorry if I have unwittingly upset you. It was just meant to be a silly post for a bit of a giggle.

  6. Upset!? Nah, not me. Terry Pratchett has been knighted, by the way!

  7. A few years ago, my friend found a hermaphrodite carrot in her garden. She ended up selling it on Ebay! Alas, her "anatomical carrot" site is no more, but I got to see the thing in person. I think it went for $50.00 and was bought by some museum that collects curiosities of that ilk.

  8. P.S. When her inlaws found out about the anatomical carrot venture, they said, "This puts your parenting into question." Hah!

  12. It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
