Trapped_DSC9856

My cape gooseberries turned into triffids while we were away. I really need to cut them back, but they are covered in fruit. I've gathered and frozen the ripe fruit, but there is so much to come. It looks like I'll have to make some gooseberry jam.
I thought about giving this a seeing too, but decided to leave it alone. I love the way the covering breaks down when the gooseberries fall.
I've never seen a real one of these - however they take such amazing photos that I really should seek one out!

I've never seen one of those before. I love the lacey delicacy of the outer layer. Does this serve as some type of protective layer, to keep bugs out?

Absolutely gorgeous, fav.

Is it only me that thinks it looks like a fish?

@islambad Thanks for stopping by, sorry but I can't see it as a fish :)
May 5th, 2017  
@merrelyn I see a mouth on the far right and the 'stalk' being a sort of tail...but that's just my crazy mind!
May 5th, 2017  
Great capture
May 6th, 2017  
@islambad I see what you mean, but the tail's wrong for a fish, maybe a mouse....

What a perfect photo for me to drop in and see! We have this plant in Nova Scotia, and it's called "Chinese Lantern". To my knowledge, no one makes anything with them, but by the time Halloween rolls around the end of October, they make wonderful holiday decorations!

I, too, enjoyed your post card, and have the ones I received on the front of my refrigerator! It's been a real pleasure to receive mail from around the world! Thanks!

@merrelyn True!

@Weezilou thanks Louise, we eat them straight from the bush. They're also delicious stewed with apple.

@merrelyn Thanks! I'll research that one to be sure I'm not mistaking it with anything else (but I don't think I am!)
May 6th, 2017  
stunning!
