SkyWatch Friday: Moonfruit :-)

You've probably heard of Starfruit... well, this is Moonfruit! :-) 

Not fully ripe yet, but a sweet treat for the eyes nonetheless. 

Feast your eye on more treats in the sky at...

And have a wonderful weekend!


  1. That is so cool! I love taking photos of the moon embraced by trees!

  2. Now, how would that taste? Cool and refreshing is my guess.

  3. Delicious sky with a beautiful moon at dusk. Greetings.

  4. I love your sense of whimsy. The quote, the Mahitable story and the star fruit..fantastic. Love it!

  5. This is brilliant, Laurie! I LOVE it!!

  6. That is a fruit to be desitrd!

  7. And with her ever-present eyes towards the sky, our blogger extraordinaire has done it again ;-). Yours was the best of the lot by the way. xoxo

  8. Everyone ~ Thank you all so much for your visit and kind comments! I really appreciate them all, but in the interest of my limited time right now I'm only able to respond to a few of them individually. I'm glad you enjoyed the photo, and thank you again!

    Judy ~ I do too, though I haven't lived near enough trees until recently to capture many! But I always love seeing that view of a "moon embraced by trees" (beautiful way to put it!)

    jabblog ~ I hadn't thought about how it would taste, but now that you mention it, I agree! :-)

    Leslie D. ~ As a big fan of whimsy, I'm flattered! :-) Thank you! Glad you enjoyed this post and the story of Mehitable, and hope you'll be back again for another dose of whimsy (for there will be more!) :-)

    Kim ~ Thank you! I have to admit, I was quite tickled when I came up with the starfruit/moonfruit thing upon downloading this photo. :-)

    Molly~ I'm glad you do, because it reminds me of some of the wonderful photos you take! :-)

    Spud ~ You are too kind, dear Spudly! I thought this was an especially impressive SkyWatch round, with several photos that literally took my breath away (and far exceeded mine!) But I sure do appreciate your loyal fandom and am glad you enjoyed it so much! :-) xoxo

  9. cool and creative! Have a great weekend!

  10. What a creative shot. It really does look like a fruit!! And thanks so much for your kind words on my blog.

  11. Serline ~ Thank you! And the same happy weekend wishes to you! :-)

    Spare Parts ~ Thanks! It did, didn't it? Like a big ol' melon (if melons grew on trees, that is! LOL)

    You are most welcome for my comment. Those beautiful thunderstorm photos were more than worthy of any and all compliments they received! I always love your gorgeous desert sky photos!

  12. LOL, that's so clever - great image!

  13. Either I never look at the sky or we just don't have skies like this. That is such a beautiful moon and I love how you framed it in the tree branch! Ansel Adams would love the dark sky!

  14. Liz and Barbara ~ Thank you, I'm glad you both liked it!

    Jo ~ Maybe you have too much light pollution there, but I think you should look at the sky more often, just in case! And I love your reference to Ansel Adams! :-)


Will Blog For Comments. :-)

Thanks for taking the time to leave yours!

  • THE WORLD WITHOUT US ~ Alan Weisman

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
