Backard Hula Skirt

 Our Banana trees are standing tall and waving new growth right now, about 20 feet tall, 3 of them
The strong winds a couple of weeks ago shredded some ot the leaves and created our Banana Hula Skirt and more yard art for my camera.

Why are bananas never lonely? Because they hang around in bunches 
Mother Banana: Why didn’t you go to school today? Little Banana: Because I didn’t peel well.
Why don’t bananas snore? Because they don’t want to wake up the rest of the bunch.
Why are you eating a banana with the skin on? Oh, it’s all right. I know What’s inside.

I love babas but the price of them here at the moment is exceedingly 45 to $10 dollars a kilo. because Cyclone Yatsi wiped out all the plantations in Northern Queensland.

Yes, it's 5:10 A.M.!! We have been up all night, record setting tornados and storms here. The T.V. weather team actually advised people to not go to bed, but to stay up in front of the T.V. A bunch of tornados came through the area and we had to go to the basement once. Many without power, we are blessed so far!! Watch is still on till 8 A.M. I think I will be calling David to ask if we can trade today for tomorrow, I don't think I can watch Ella after never going to bed last night. Love your hula skirt!!!! And that's just what it looks like, so cool!!!

Your photos today have a lot of a-"peel." My banana trees are just coming up. I've had them about 10 years. Of course they never bloom here in WV. Our season isn't long enough.

Well very cool hula skirt you got there but it does look a little on the short side. I hope you'll wear something
It did make for some cool photos and the jokes just cracked me up. Now I have to go see if there are any bananas in the kitchenf

So your green thumbs grow bananas too?! How many trees do you have going? Did you plant them? I bet you have an avocado tree too!
