Hi. Everyone!!! I have taken a few different photo's of some of the things that are in our back yard like banana's flowers and my mothers African violets.. Bargara beach as well.. We have three bunches of banana's on our plants.. We will have so many that we won't be able to eat them all so we will give some to our friends.

Anyway please enjoy these photo's.

Wow, those pictures are awesome, you have some very beautiful flowers! It's also great that you won't ever need to buy oranges nor bananas as you grow your own. ;) Do you also have lemon trees?

That's great, Lyn! I only have room for one plum tree in my back yard, it's more than 30 years old now, so it doesn't give us as much plums as it used to.

I was going to say your mother certainly has a green thumb. The Orchids are just beautiful. As you know Lyn I have bananas in my backyard too and get fruit off them. They say you can't get bananas so far south but I do, so does my stepmother as that is where I got mine from. I also have apple trees a pear tree (triple grafted so I get 3 varieties on one plant) a mandarin, an orange and a lemon tree. I also have a mulberry tree and an olive.

The bananas are safe for birds but it is often hard to get them to eat them as they are not as sweet as say an apple. But bananas are very good for them if you can get them to eat them.
