Another Kind of Apple

Here's another kind of 'apple' which I have in my backyard, which is technically not an apple! Those people who name the plants just love to confuse us.  
This pineapple plant had produced the perfect pineapple two years ago. We harvested that large, heavy fruit and had a feast. I was planning to pull out the plant but noticed two small suckers growing from the sides of the parent plant, so I decided to leave the whole plant intact. After two whole years, now I have two more perfect pineapples to admire...and then to enjoy, of course. Who's complaining? Not me.

Linking to Haiku Heights for the prompt "Innocence"

Innocence is not all 
it appears to be
pure and  pristine but prickly 



  1. Ouch! Looks can be deceiving. :) I really like this!

  2. Wonderful details of the pineapple. Happy Macro Monday!

  3. Fun photos, Rosie. I like the distorted image too.

  4. Juicy pineapple from garden! They look so tempting!

  5. Beautiful pineapples! I've have to wait for at least 18 months more to harvest mine!

  6. What a yummy haiku...yes innocence can be prickly. I like your focus on pineapples. Nicely done.

  7. Hey! Where did you learn how to write Haiku?

  8. All this exotic fruit you have in your garden!

  9. It is like double happiness seeing your double pineapples. Love your Haiku. Good job!

  10. Would like to have a pineapple plant here, if not for the cold season...

  11. Rosie your garden is absolutely beautiful.
    I can tell there is a lot of tender care given to it.

  12. If your pineapple took 2 years to fruit. I wonder how long we have to wait for the our ones grown in mediteranean climate.
