A studio portrait of our clownish pineapple, a heavy-jowled fellow with a tiny fez at a rakish tilt. All the pineapples on our farm are of this odd shape. Akka thinks the lack of rain is responsible for the shrunken crowns. But what is the reason for this bottom-heaviness?
STAR OF THE WEEK
This is an unusual “humpback cowrie” found by one of our Teitei guests at the sand dunes this week.
I cannot believe her good fortune in finding this shell perfectly intact.
I am smitten by the utterly gorgeous design shimmering below the glassy surface.
So shiny that even the photographer’s hands are captured in the photo.
THE GRANDKIDS ARE COMING
And Auntie Monica is getting ready. That’s all I have to say!
