Away From Home
Yesterday I tried to wrap up loose ends in my business, so I could head down for a weekend with my eldest in Loxahatchee. It is beautiful down here, but even though the thermometer reads the same as it did in Gainesville, it’s brutally HOT. Fortunately, there are a lot of flowers and plants that love it hot, so we took a little walk through her yard to see what’s growing.
A curry plant with pink berries and white blossoms has grown tremendously from the twig it started out as. We found a few of the ripe, deep purple berries and tasted them. The thick skin reminds me of the grapes we used to pick from the arbor in our back yard, but with a spicy finish.
