Fabulous Fruit Fridays!!! ~ Papaya's N Mirrors




The Papaya!! What a beautiful fruit...not only does it taste great but look inside. The seeds are soft perfect for the tropical areas it comes from. Ready to germinate when spread by wild animals....Today I wanted to try a different way of presenting this fruit, so I took my big mirror outside and tried to get some unique shots. Anyone can put fruit on a counter and take a shot...but I wanted a little bit more. Happy Friday Everyone :)

  4. I don't know why but I went back to did a chronology of your blog from when you first started. I just like to see how things progress I suppose. I was fun looking at all the beautiful photos. I like your cats. I have an extreme allergy to cats. One was hit and killed by a car and one I had to give up because of my husband's allergy. Now I'm divorced but I've developed an extreme allergy to them so I can't have any cats. Anyway wanted you to know that I liked reading through your blog from the get go. Sometimes I do that when I see a blog I like and want to get a feel for it.

  9. After seeing your delicious looking photos I ordered a Papaya with my grocery delivery. It arrived today. The first time I have ever had one. I had assumed from your pictures it would be fairly large so was surprised to see it was a bit under 6 inches long - but maybe that is the normal size? Also it was pretty well yellow with just some small dark green patches.
    Anyway it was ripe, as advertised, so I cut it in half and the inside was exactly like your pictures. Scooped out the seeds and ...... beautiful. Not a lot of taste but sweet and succulent. Papaya is now permanently on my list of must have fruits all thanks seeing to your mirror pictures, Crista.
