FOTD #19: Prickly Trios or Tasty Treats

This month, since TreeSquares is over, I decided to participate in Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge – (FOTD).  Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it.  I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:

  • Single flowers
  • Buds
  • Multiple flowers
  • Bouquet
  • Flower fields
  • Wildflowers
  • Tree or bush blossoms
  • Autumn leaves
  • Spring leaves
  • Decorative Cabbage
  • Berries
  • Still life
  • Fake or Silk Flowers

Eat at Your Own Risk

Do you want my suggestion? First of all I’m a picky eater anyway. If it’s sweet – no questions asked, but anything else is suspicious.

  • First, the truth is Google is not helping me find out what they are. They came from my trip to Bunya Mountain National Park. The leaves don’t have five lobes like a Sweet Gum Tree.
  • Second, while I read that gum has been made from gumballs, no flavoring has been added.
  • Third, why chew them when you can photograph them and move on to something more colorful?

The Bunya Mountains held a treasure trove of interesting bits whether you looked up towards the towering trees above you or focused on the ground as you tried not to step on anything poisonous. Obviously this flower was not poisonous of the fly and the spider would be dead. Right?

Wild flower from the Bunya National Park

There weren’t any clues that came along with these photos. Therefore, I can’t guarantee the safety of these berries. They lay on the ground and the vines produced more leaves than berries. The other clump of berries that I cropped out was brown. If I’d left both, you would hardly have noticed either of them.

beautiful wild fruit in the Bunya Mountains – to eat or not to eat?

So my advice is to bring some packets of sweetener or eat at your own risk. See your HERE tomorrow for PPAC #10.

    • I am better during the day especially. I just got back from a 2,000 step walk with Puppy Girl and breakfast with Vince a pickleball friend. But I feel like I’m living in Bizarro World where people are being nice to me (except Vince, of course) because I’ve been messed up. My conversation is so limited when we talk about what we’ve been doing recently. 🙂





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
