Yes, We Got Bananas


Two years ago I bombarded you with photos of our bananas growing and promised I would not show them again.    I LIED! Because this is so fascinating I can't stop snapping it.


if you missed the first bombardment and to see the flowers up close, CLICK HERE scroll down to see the flowers

Wow!!!! I hope you never stop showing your photos of your banana tree. These are fascinating!! Beautiful colors! Can't wait to see the yellow bananas!!!! Do they always produce this time of year? Do temps have to be just right? I will be showing this to my granddaughter. Interesting!

I never get tired of seeing that beautiful bloom with the bananas popping out. But every time you show bananas the Banana Boat song gets stuck in my brain. "Hey, Mr. Tally Man, tally me bananas......

Love these pics, Sandra. Very interesting.

Remington said...

I still can't get over the fact you have bananas....so cool! I wish I could grow some on Remington Drive. By the way -- I do run but Beth doesn't....ha ha!

When I was in California I saw bananas all the time but never this close up. So is that a blossom kind of thing they come out of? I know nothing. Some people have bananas here but they are few and far between. I don't think they grow as well here because it's too hot and not tropical enough. There's a banana tree down on the temple grounds in town. Fascinating.

I must have missed the last banana photos so it's o.k. you didn't keep your promise.

Best,

I'm glad you changed your mind. I love bananas, I'll be fascinated to watch them grow too.

The closest I've ever come to seeing bananas growing is in a public tropical garden under glass. This is very cool, Sandra!

Amy Burzese said...

So pretty! I guess that's the "bloom".

Snapper II said...

The banana plant is so beautiful and festive looking. It could be used for a decoration for a fiesta, etc. And then the party goers can eat the bananas... :-) The colors are gorgeous! Who is a better artist than our God...?
Love you, Madeline

How cool!!! I've never seen bananas grow. Plus, I wasn't here, back when you showed them before. ,-) So there!

Do your dogs eat bananas, as a treat? One blogger's "grand" doggies, like them. :-) Never heard of this before, either.

Your banana trees are gorgeous! This is making me really miss my banana trees. Your yard is full of fantstic trees and flowers!

Beautiful! Wow - those are bananas? Cool.

Ginny said...

Wow, these are so beautiful!!! I know you told me if you eat them or not, but I forget. I don't ever remember seeing them look like this before.

I am looking forward to watching the progression of these bananas.As for running,the animal chasing me would have to be very big.:)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I can't imagine having your own banana tree! I've never seen one before. Cool!!

It's so neat that you have a banana tree in your back yard, that I enjoy each post you share with us.

I am with you on the scissors. And are those going to become a bunch of bananas - real ones - all you need is peanut butter.

Love, sandie

Nellie said...

How interesting! I've never seen blossoms on a banana tree! Thank you for sharing them.

This is very cool since I've never seen a banana any other way than in the grocery store.
LOL on the running. I don't run either.

Angela said...

Well, I wasn't with you 2 years ago so snap on! lol I haven't ever seen a banana tree before! That is so interesting!

That banana tree is pretty cool- I haven't seen any since I lived in Panama, and that was ages and ages ago. Glad Baby Girl is doing better!
