An Unbelievable Botanical Specimen

Isn't this just...beautiful? It's a banana plant, of some sort (check out all of the unripe green fruit above). As trite as this may be, I am in awe of nature every single day, whether it be a tiny bee, a jaw-dropping sunset, a flock of pigeons wheeling off of a lightpost in perfect unison...or this. (This photo wasn't taken in a botanical garden--this wonder is growing right here in my very own 'hood, around the block from my house!)

BTW: this is my 700th blog post. Wow! It continues to be a pleasure to pick out some little something from my life and share it here, and it's been wonderful to make a bunch of bloggy friends--you know who you are! Hey, y'all--thanks ever so much for stopping by!
