Papaya Blooms and Legs


Bob planted a Papaya seed in a bucket many moons ago, we have no idea how many. It has had flowers several times and they always fall off. This one has stayed, and now the bloom has a fruit pod in the middle. Above is one side below is the other side of same fruit/flower. There is another flower about to bloom next to it, and I will TRY to remember to get a shot of it.


I said to Bob... What in Carnation are you doing? are you pollen my leg  orchid-ing me? Get out of my photo. Are you all digging this?

At least the photo bomber that stole the focus from the flower to his legs, has legs worthy of a photo

His legs are very blogworthy! Wow, this is so cool! I would never even have recognized it as fruit. Will you eat it?

Hello Sandra, it is cool to finally see a bloom. Now we need to see the fruit. Nice legs! Have a happy day!

Ohhh I see so many things blooming when I come here. Never seen a papaya tree/bush. Remember all the Leggs panty hose commercials? Bob might want to apply for a job as leg model

Loved the puns and all the legs, Sandra. And, I also was wondering if you would eat the fruit.

A hardy bloom after all this time. Will this be Bob's leg-acy?

Gail said...

He does indeed.

Have a fun day.

Good legs! We have pawpaws in South Africa and I always heard that you should have two trees next to each other: a male and a female tree. Perhaps this works for papayas as well? Just a thought. But, oh, the legs!

Nature is sure baffling, isn't it? That's an amazing bloom!
