Ripped from the tropical warmth of Mexico and plopped back down in the middle of NYC. It's rarely an easy re-entry, but that's what happens when you live someplace you don't always want to be. At least we didn't have to drive home from the airport in a blinding snow storm, the way my parents did in Boston.
Before I devote the day to more mundane tasks, I want to post pictures of a few of the plants I enjoyed last week. One last, bright glimpse of sunshine and exotic colors, for you and for me.
Carissa macrocarpa (Natal plum)
Sadly, I didn't know what this last one was until I got home and looked it up; if only I'd known the fruit was edible I would have taken a bite! Has anyone out there ever tasted the Natal plum? I'd love to know what it's like.
