Flat Stanley: Bahamas Adventure – Flat Stanley Goes Gardening

Dear STPL Friends,

Flat Stanley Goes Gardening - Sea Grape Bush
Flat Stanley Goes Gardening – Sea Grape Bush

Here I am flat spank in the middle of a sea grape bush! The female tree grows grape-like clusters of fruit which turn purple when they are ripe. They can be eaten plain or made into preserves. Guess I’ll have to come back during sea grape season!

Me and Harriet the Spy

Here I am with Harriet The Spy. Our new Bahamian  friend, Jack, 7, is holding us in front of  bouganvillea bushes (Does everything in the Bahamas have a funny name?) —   woody, climbing vines covered in thorns with spectacular flowers in  shades of red, orange, purple, even vibrant white.  When I picked a  flower for Harriet’s hair, a thorn jumped out and stuck my finger.  Small price to pay for a smile from Harriet!

 

Cheers!

Flat Stanley
