Banana Quixote

The banana plant reminds me of Don Quixote fighting at the windmills. Don't you think? This Banana Quixote attacks the apple tree branches.

By now, the Mama's banana grove ought to be pruned back. The rain and the muddy ground have kept me from doing the job. When it's not raining, the temperatures have been in the 30s in the early mornings. I was going to say that's cold for us, but that's only because we forget from one winter to the next.

Anyway, this year I've learned that icy temperatures burn the banana fronds dry, just like not watering would. Interesting, huh?

  1. I love this! And you are totally right with that picture- it does look like Don Quixote to me. Wishing you a beautiful week. :)

  2. To Dream the impossible'll be able to fight that windmill sooner or later

  3. I wrote about Don Quixote on abcw a while ago and the the picture reminds me of one of the illustrations I posted...I'll have have a flashback and try and find it,
    I do hope the bananas survive frost can be relentless on delicate plants.
    love n hugs,
    ABCW team.

    1. I remember your Don Quixote post and the illustration. When I saw my photo, it reminded me of the illustration. Like minds we are.
      The banana grove has always come back. What I need to do is prune off the molted (right word?) parts once the rain has stopped.

  4. it indeed looks like that story ;-) Well chosen and thought of.

    Have a nice ABC-Wednesday / _ Week
