The above images are all from www.danielost.be - he is undoubtedly my favourite floral designer and was the reason I made the change from politics to floristry. His designs are so simple, yet simultaneously so grand. Obviously, some of his work is out of the price range of many, but his work is so influential that I couldn't resist putting it on here.

Jabuticaba, or Brazilian grape tree, (Myrciaria cauliflora) is one of the most popular native fruits of Brazil. Small white flowers are produced along the larger trunks & branches (“cauliflora” means “flowers growing on trunk”). The fruit forms on the trunks on short stems, sometimes 2-3 fruits in a cluster. When trees are in heavy fruit, the branches can't be seen for the large numbers of dark purplish-black fruits that look like large grapes. They have white pulp with several small seeds.
This is a Jaboticaba tree, native to Central and South America. The fruit grows out of the trunk! (Ken Love) thanks for telling me what it is...

The natural splendor of the Jaboticaba Tree (also called Brazilian Grape Tree) is native to Central and South America. The grape-like fruit grows out of the trunk! Amazingly Beautiful.
It’s just so amazing how Mother Nature provides us with natural sources of edible fruits and plants. Just so remarkable how things like that happen; it’s really a mystery to me. Just take a look at this beautiful tree, Oh my lord, isn’t this a gorgeous tree? Definitely! That’s what I thought, when I saw…
Jabuticaba: fruits growing straight from the trunk Jabuticaba (aka Brazilian Grape Tree) is a totally unique fruit tree. Its fruits are unusual as they grow on the trunk and branches of the tree instead of on stems. The tree may even look covered in purple warts or pimples when it is fully in season. It is often used in its native lands in South America much like grapes are used elsewhere. Jabuticaba wines and liqueurs are both popular and exquisite!

Pollia condensata's vivid sparkle comes from the interaction of light with its skin, which contains layers of microscopic cellulose fibers. The effect is a metallic blue brighter than any yet described in a biological material.

Majestic Tree, Awesome Tree
There is a wonderful tree standing in the median between north and southbound lanes on Central Expressway in the SF Bay Area. Every time drive past it, I am struck by its beauty. I would love to paint it, but I would probably get arrested for setting up my easel in the median, and the constant traffic prevents me from stopping to photograph it. This photograph reminds me of that tree.

Bananas. They grow like crazy in my garden.
Color Green, Green Bananas, Flowers Plants, Young Banana, Green Green, Tropical Fruits, Banana Cluster, Green With Envy
This is what young bananas look like. Bananas trees are cultivated in just about every warm clime location. They are kind of like corn, in that they grow on a large type of pulpy stalk and need to be cut down every year, Unlike corn, a new tree can grow from the old root that is still under ground.
A banana is an edible fruit produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants of the genus Musa. Musa species are native to tropical South and Southeast Asia, and are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea.They are grown in at least 107 countries, primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser extent to make fiber, banana wine and as ornamental plants. Bananas are among the main world food crops, along with rice, wheat and maize.

They are native to many parts of the globe, but cultivated varieties are almost exclusively from the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Crassulas are usually propagated by stem or leaf cuttings.
