If you wander your local neighborhood what kind of trees do you have?
Here are a selection of my local neighborhood trees and a lot of them are fruit trees 🙂 with a few mystery trees thrown in – do you know what they are?
Such a thin sparse tree…but it still produces fruit
How can such a small thin looking tree still produce fruit? Where there is a will, there is a way!
A big thank you to Beatriz of gardeningB.com for pointing me in the right direction – these are actually Papayas not Mango as I incorrectly identified. See, I need all the help I can get 🙂
However, I’m going to keep this fun Mango fact here 😉 because it’s so interesting.
Mango Mystery – Solved Mangos are distantly related to a few plants that you’d probably never guess: the cashew and pistachio.
You can see why Adam and Eve used Fig Leaves to cover themselves – they’re huge!
A vibrant, green fig tree
Did You Know? Fossil records date figs back to between 9400-9200 B.C.
They are not my favorite fruit
They are extremely popular and nice as Guacamole
Fun Avocado Fact Avocados will not ripen on the tree. They must be picked from the tree to initiate ripening. The leaves supply a substance that prevents ripening. The best way to store avocados is to leave them on the tree; they will store for 7 months or more when left on the tree.
Now it’s your turn..
I need some help identifying what the following trees/fruit are? Any clues?
Really not sure what kind of tree this is?
Do You Know What This Is? Is this also a Fig?
and then of course there was this tree…
and this was underneath it…a good clue and useful to help identify it. Does this help?
If you can solve the mystery, please leave a comment below.
I’ll leave you with one last photo – a collection of mini balls that were under a palm tree. They’re definitely the fruit/seed from the palm tree (usually green when still attached) but to me they look like eyeballs. I guess Hallowe’en must be on my mind, even though it’s a couple of months away, and the colors reminded me of Fall/Autumn.
Some photos are significant not because of what’s depicted, but because of the mood they create. They communicate an idea that transcends the actual subject of the image.
Here’s a photo that conveys a sense of mystery. Can you tell what it is?
In case you need a clue – it’s an Alligator lurking just below the water – it was extremely large and very close. It’s very well camouflaged against the stones and quiet. He had swam up close without me even realizing.
It’s official, those numbers have returned…but I lost a day so lets make up for it now!
Yesterday, April 8th 2015, marked Lost Numbers Day…a day when the Lost hatch numbers fell back into alignment.
4 8 15 16 23 42
If you don’t recognize those numbers let me explain.
Lost (2004–2010) was a television series, created by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof, about the aftermath of a plane crash on a mysterious tropical island somewhere in the South Pacific.
So why was April 8th 2015 Lost Number Day?
The first three numbers in the sequence relate to the fourth month (April), the day (8th) and the year (2015) but how do you explain the next three numbers? Well it’s the time 16:23:42 as shown in 24 hour clock mode as the Hour:Minutes:Seconds
In 1988, slightly more than 16 years before the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, Danielle Rousseau’s science team picked up a mysterious short-wave transmission from the island. The transmission was merely six numbers repeated over and over again: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. She wasn’t the only one who heard them. The same transmission was also picked up by a U.S. Navy long wave transmission monitoring station where Leonard Simms and Sam Toomey worked.

Miss Marple, the nosy but friendly busy-body, now on iOS
If you love all things Agatha Christie, but especially everyone’s favorite spinster amateur detective Miss Jane Marple, then you are in for a treat with our new app – Miss Marple for iOS.
The thing about Miss Marple, is that you can’t really ignore her, even though you may not see her at first. She moves around like some frail old lady often muttering something of great importance under her breath and the only sound you may hear is the faint clicking away of needles in the distance, expertly putting a new knitting project together.
Come to think of it, has anyone ever seen any of her finished results? A jumper for her nephew perhaps or a scarf for one of her many ladies that lunch or take tea and cake in her wonderful garden. I’m not sure I have, but then it’s all part of the devious mask behind the clever brain that’s working on so many things at once.
Settle in and I’ll explain how the app that we have made will help you keep track of all your favorite movies, books and tv shows.
