Color This AMAZING!


In spite of our Silly Squirrels (I will no print what Bob  calls the little rascals) you can see the last bounty from the tree on our counter this week.


Can you guess what this is? It is Amazing and the first we have ever seen.





It is the seed that was in this three pounder, if you enlarge you can see where the roots of the seed were starting to come out the top of the fruit. If this was planted in the ground, we would have another TREE and I don't want the one we have....

BTW I DID LOOK AT EVERY SINGLE POST THAT WAS IN MY READER FOR THE PAST TWO DAYS, SO I DID NOT MISS ANYTHING. HAD A GREAT WEEKEND OFF

But if you plant another tree there will be one for you and Bob and one for the squirrels. Of course the squirrels would think both trees were for them. It's a squirrel thing.

Declan said...

That is amazing! How can you not want an avocado tree?! Us Brits would kill for one over here! Deccy x

SweetMarie said...

The squirrels are thinking you guys want to share! :) Great photos!

Maple Lane said...

That seed is amazing!

EM Illustrator said...

Wow, the seed is massive!! I like the squirrel, they're cute even though they are scavangers, getting to everything it seems. You really have to look hard here to see them, however I saw one the other day while out walking but they are so quick.
enjoy your day!

Madi and Mom said...

OMMS (oh my madsnapper) That is some seed. I would never in 100 years guessed. Oh we have a what is it post later this week...it might be right up your alley!
Hope your weekend was good.
My sis's husband will be in your neck of the tropics this week. He has a conf. in Clearwater.

Wow, a ready made tree start. Oh those darn squirrels, pesky little buggers aren't they?

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Glad you had a good weekend off. I had a ding-dang-busy one. -grin-

Happy Halloween!

Glad you took some time off, Sandra. It's good to do that every now and again! I cannot imagine having my very own avocado tree. Why do you not want it in your yard?

Pam :) said...

Love the colors and textures.. and the heart in your hand, Sandra.

Remington said...

That is a huge seed! You are lucky you can grow so many cool things!

Chatty Crone said...

I love avocados! That was a seed you held in your hand?

Cranberry Morning said...

Good grief, look at that seed!!!

And if I were there, I'd fight that squirrel for the avocados. They look wonderful!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Cute little squirrel :)

George said...

That seed is huge. I can understand why you wouldn't want another similar tree in your yard. We have the same problem with oak trees in our yard. I'll bet Bob uses some of the same words to describe squirrels that I use.

TexWisGirl said...

quick! send that seed to sweetmarie so she can plant it! (just kidding - no idea if she likes avocados.)

Susannah said...

Wow! Very interesting, Sandra!I image a lot of people would love to have that seed.

A Quiet Corner said...

That is huge!!! You grow them big down there!!!...:)JP

Betty Manousos said...

and the little squirrel is very cute.

gorgeous close-ups, all of them and i love the new header.

wish you a great week ahead~

Hi Sandra, while I enjoy avocados (once in a while) it's easier to buy them at the stores vs. having a tree as you have already noted. Wonder if the squirrel enjoyed his treat.

Debra Dickinson said...

Look at you floating in that leaf! I love your banner! Love the squirrel pic too but I'm sorry he's in competition with you for the loot. LOL. That's quite a seed! Wow. I'd have to plant it just to see what happens. Glad you had a great, well-deserved weekend off. HugZ!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Amazing! The squirrels are relentless when they want something.

Betsy Adams said...

Just think what a wonderful tree that would make.... ha ha ... You, of all people, don't need more trees!!!! BUT--maybe someone would enjoy it... Did you offer it to a friend??????

Hope you did have a good weekend. We may get some snow tonight....
Hugs,
Betsy

Ann said...

You have me curious about what Bob calls the squirrels....lol
That is some seed. I never would have guessed that's what it was

Rose said...

I had no idea what it was...would never have guessed in a million years. Amazing shots.

Scott said...

Three pounder??? Wow.

Angela said...

I'll bet Jake and Baby don't like those pesky squirrels in their yard at all! lol Right now the squirrels around here are gathering up nuts for the winter. It's funny seeing them run across the road with a walnut that is bigger than their heads! I suppose your squirrels don't have to do that since it is warm there all year round. Always something growing for them to eat. I can't believe that would be tree. You probably can't find anyone who would want it either.

Linda said...

Hi Sandra! That's an amazing avocado. Thanks for showing us as I was wondering whether there would be a massive stone inside and that was a surprise to see those innards.
I was going to have a week off from blogging due to child care commitments, but I couldn't stay away for that long! Take care over there, Sandra.
Thinking of you.

Deb said...

welcome back...that avocado looks great...cute little tree rat..

DawnTreader said...

The colours ARE amazing and I love that "stillife" you made with the glass jar and the red berries.

Dee said...

I am glad I take Saturdays off...I took yesterday off also...just got to busy and the wind was awful. I enjoy the things you show us,,,I would never see them if you didn't :)

Grandma C's Place said...

WOW ... You got one to grow that big?
I have tried to grow some but they didn't survive.
They are expensive in the store where I live so grow and sell them yummy green things. lol

Maggie M said...

That is one amazing seed. Love the picture of the squirrel enjoying the avocado. Hugs
