Hi all and thanks for your response to my 'Froggy Fashion' image Smile
And now for a bit of fun trivia for 'Silly Sunday'.
The Bikini Tree thrives on hot dry Weather and grows mainly on Coastal areas throughout the World. During long periods of hot dry Weather, the Bikini Tree often fails to produce the Bikini Top, leaving only the Bikini Bottom to bask in the Sun. However, The Bikini tree can sometimes suffer from the Bikini Bug, which can gnaw away at the Bikini Bottom until it is no more than a String. (The Tree in this picture has no Strings attached by the way) This Bug is common in South America and the South of France, but sadly, not as common in the South of EnglandSad On some Beaches, the Bikini tree fails to produce a Bikini at all, while older, more mature Trees, tend to produce a Bikini with the Top and Bottom attached to each other, providing more protection from the Sun, and giving more shade to those sitting beneath the Tree. If you would like to know more about the Fruits of the Bikini Tree, please visit a Beach near you.

All the best to all,

John Smile

What a hoot!!! Had a real giggle reading your fun intro up top........makes me want to head for the coast with camera and binoculars at the ready. But I'd probably manage to get myself arrested if I tried to follow your example, John.
The other BUT is that with the customary summer weather up here, I doubt if the Bikini Trees are thriving too well, and almost certainly not in bloom.

Oh dear, I look at all the wrong things. The hands in V2, the umbrella in V3, the bag in V4. I won't mention the horizon in V5...
I can't remember when I last felt warm enough to do that.
Sigh...

I was looking through these for a red ripe one but you missed out there.

An absolute hoot of an intro, John, and a new arboreal discovery to add to the usual catalogue.
I suspect the cause of V1 to have been a common-or-garden dispute or tiff, sometimes known as a falling-out Wink Smile Blush

A fine informative narrative John,
but you missed out one vital piece of info.
At what time of the year is this species right for plucking ?
A fine set.

Love the greens of the bikini that works a treat with the greens of the tree John. Whilst viewing the series the brain reported back to the eye that there was a possibility that the lady viewed in V4 with the super body could be the Frog Lady uploaded earlier. Enjoying the series, keep them coming.

Dave.
