Heavenly Inflorescence

By Potra  
It is been said that the scientific name of bananas was given by Alexander Von Humboldt who named it "Musa Paradisiaca" or "Heavenly Muse".
I am sorry for not having a good moment to comment on your wonderful pictures, I will return to normal soon.
I took this image today after a meeting...I didn't even had lunch!!
Cheers my friends. Smile

Can't see any inflorescence but like the picture.
I'd like to grow big bananas here but would cost a fortune to do it.
Good source of potassium.
Another very interesting picture, thanks Marian.

What an incredible capture.....
Love it.....
Don't overdo things......

But diet patterns change as you age
Take care.....

I'm learning too with this amazing image of the Banana plant.
Very photogenic Marian.
Bananas are the biggest selling item in our supermarkets, I believe.
So Marian at least grab one of these if you don't have time for lunch.
