A Couple of Pictures

Easter Egg Plant
The Easter Egg plants were an interesting adventure for us this past year. They were growing good and getting larger each day. Then they started disappearing! We notice some missing, then a few more. Before we knew it, all our eggs were gone! We think it was the squirrels.

I still have some eggs to show you. They were given to us by a friend who was also growing them this year.

These non-edible eggs have been plucked from a plant. Now it’s time to open them up and get the seeds so we can try again next year.  IMG_0187

Old Glory
IMG_0157 I never tire of looking at our flag, the star spangled banner. Just a few days ago I was at our Post Office branch and looked up and saw our flag flying high. I could not resist taking this picture.

His response was, "Call for backup."

I had never heard of the Easter Egg Plant. Your "Easter Eggs" look like Hawaiian Lilikoi (passion fruit) which we pick from vines when we go hiking. It makes a lovely drink when squeezed.
Thanks for introducing us to something new. It must be tasty when fried like eggplant.

I don't think the fruit from the Easter egg plant is edible.
