It is possible, I suppose that sometime we will learn everything there is to learn: what the world is, for example, and what it means. —Mary Oliver
I share Mary Oliver’s delight in exploring the unknown. Today, for example, I’m reveling in all there is to learn about this plump, juicy pineapple guava–an exotic fruit that I just now tasted for the very first time. Wow, is it ever good! It’s similar to a kiwi in size and texture, and it tastes like a tropical smoothie. A sweet indulgence, born of curiosity and mindfulness.
I planted this sapling in my backyard garden two years ago, during the autumnal equinox…
It was a miracle, really, to watch these beautiful flowers bloom in springtime, and then transform themselves into edible fruit.
…and if I’m lucky, it’ll produce more fruit every year to share and savor.
Aren’t they gorgeous?!? And they’re edible!
Very pretty flowers and the fruit sounds delicious.
The flowers are edible and the fruit is juicy and sweet. I like also that the leaves are silvery-green. I’m so glad I took the nursery owner’s suggestion that I plant one in my garden.
Lovely! (and yummy)
Thanks, Carol! I agree, on both counts. What a lucky find.
