JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Pineapple Bromeliad

One of the joys of living in the tropics is that I can grow almost anything.  My latest joy is the pineapple.

We planted a couple of pineapple tops (bromeliads)  in the garden some time ago.  It was so long ago that I had forgotten about them.  But to my surprise and wonder those spiky tops have now produced a fruit.  They are a very pretty fruit when they are young and I can't wait for them to mature to see how juicy they taste.
