Bennie's Banana Trees

Texas 1994

We got things growing  and these are the banana trees, they loved the very hot summers .

That is silly me and Blackie enjoying a rest , see my garden window.

When the blooms opened on the stalk they looked like little orchids and the smell was so sweet.

the little blooms were pink , you can see the little green banana with the bloom on the end.

So cool, having your own banana tree! I imagine you ate them all the time when they were on the tree. Could you tell a difference in taste between yours and the ones in grocery stores?

I remember growing up in Fl and we had those. Use to shade the pool area. Thanks for the memories Patsy!!! I have been enjoying them. Blessings

They are just wonderful Patsy! How exciting to get fresh bananas as well as to have the shade! I planted a little lemon tree last year in a pot and it is blooming now.

You have a banana tree with real live bananas. Too cool. Love the setting. I'd stay out there forever!

Those are pretty trees and it is wonderful to see you and precious Blackie enjoying the scenery.

I've heard that bananas ripe from the tree are a thousand times more tasty than the store bought ones we are used to. What a treat!

I love to eat bananas. I wish we could have the trees here but it gets too cold. Yours are/where very pretty. ~:)
