Surprise! It’s a pineapple

img_7369

A pineapple is a lovely surprise! Growing a pineapple is as easy as buying a pineapple and eating it. Retain the top crown and pop in in the ground. Water and Wait. Like, really really wait. Two years later – up pops a prickly little pretty thing!

The pineapple grows in the middle of the spiky leaves. I think this one is ready for me to pick but I am hoping the longer I leave it the sweeter it will be and I am pretty sure no wildlife is game enough to steal it. They would be stabbed by the vicious leaves and spiky skin.

Pineapples are in fact a bromeliad. Bromeliads exist for the sole purpose of surprising us with their flowers. I love them very much and will never refuse the gift of a bromeliad.
