TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Feijoa Flowers


My Feijoas have just finished flowering
and now, I look forward to the fruits
of my labours


they sport such intricate flowers with bright colours
and even if one does not appreciate the fruit, which  I love,
their evergreen foliage and spectacular flowers certainly 
deserve a place in the garden.

    (some folks hunt and eat squirrels here in the states, too. it is often associated with poor country folks but often it is the first game young hunters learn to hunt.)

  2. Have never heard of Feijoas, but if the fruit tastes half as good as that flower is beautiful must be good.

  12. I love your pretty flowers of Feijoa, and I could never resist tasting the luscious petals, do you nibble them? They are not hardy where I live now, though. They are a great shrub.

  18. Those are beautiful flowers. I don't know them at all and am off to visit Ms Wikipedia to learn about the fruit. (Someone told me Wiki was female because she thinks she knows everything ;))!)

  21. Ah, so that's what Feijoa flowers look like. Spectacular. A lady brought me some of the fruit from her garden when I worked at Prince Henry's hospital in Melbourne over forty years ago. I've never forgotten their wonderful flavour. Really enjoyed your post!
