Papaya By The Sea

A papaya, battered by the brutal coastal environment. A feast for birds and lizards.




Lithops lesliei cv Albinica. This tiny South African plant, the size of a dime, is oblivious to the winds. The old outer leaves are nourishment for the new lime colored bodies in the center.



Brooding sea.



Paradise.

  6. Dear Prospero, the lime thingy is so unique! I have never come across such plant before. And the papaya, oh the birds must have been so hungry ;-) Have a great day!

  7. Following the papaya, I thought the lithops too was a fruit (cut up). I've only seen purple and grey versions before. This one looks very pretty.

  11. Your pictures are very eclectic. I do love them all as each is telling a separate story. Each has its wonderful merits, say its the sea or a half eaten papaya. The different plants are wonderful each is special and makes you yearn for sublime, lazy days; doing nothing just dreaming...
