Can you guess what this is?
A Pineapple flower!
Yes, the top of the pineapple I grew and then planted last May (2016) is flowering and I should be eating it by next May!
Yes, every pineapple you eat, requires two years to grow!
(If you tried fresh pineapple and didn't like the acid taste-I will tell you to rub the freshly cut pineapple in salt and let it sit for 5-10 mins,
then rinse it and slice it up for eating!
The Lifesaver Cactus is blooming again-this is number four!
It is about 1 1/4" across the points; no smell but very rubbery looking!
The plant has these long fingers that spread and grow and drop off and root-it is very interesting!
And a friend from far away thought of me and sent along some miles of machine quilting thread!
I have them sitting out because they are so pretty
and the thoughtfulness just warms me up!
