Once again — here is my own project announcement: commencing May 1st and running 26 days, I will be doing Alphabet Photos. Day one is A. Day two is B. Day three is C. Etc. (Just what did you expect from a Pre-K teacher?!) I would love it if you would join me! Please, please say you will!

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Such a great idea. Not sure I can have time to participate at the moment things are hectic. Besides the alphabet is such a commitment!!! 🙂

  2. Now… what is the difference between ORNAMENTAL bananas and EATING bananas? That is such a cool picture … to me… I have never actually seen bananas on the tree!

    And … I am putting Project Alphabet ON my calendar!!! Whoooo hoooo!

  3. I love the bananas! Every time I see a shot of bananas growing, I’m taken aback that they seem to grow “upside-down”… it’s like I forget until I see another photo.

    White, though?! I’ve seen pics of them in what I thought were all stages of ripeness. Guess not, huh?

    Thanks for your visit to Where the Walls are Soft. I hope you come by again now and then….

  4. Nice to see another Project Green making it on Sky Watch also.
    Well captured Sky but I was looking at the Bannanas..

  5. the bananas really look interesting and this is the first time i actually see mangos on a tree
    those palm fronds and white clouds really make the sky photo 🙂

  6. Quartintino — thank you. Please come back and compliment me any time!

    Abe — thanks. I was snapping photos of a lovely old building when looked up and saw that spot of sky. It fairly shouted, “Sky Watch!”

    Sandy — what do you know, so do I!

    Pauline — you never did pick up my email address. How come?

    Melli — ornamental (& wild) bananas are chock full of seeds! Also, they are not tasty and sweet.

    Rambling Round — see my response to Melli.

    Les — whoa! That number thing was kind of scary. These banana skins seem almost translucent and they have just the barest hint of green. i have never seen anything like them, either.

    Polona — I’d never seen mangos or bananas on a tree before coming to Hawaii. Palm trees I saw in California and Vegas.

  7. Hi Quilly – I’m reading but cna’t type much! (Hurt wrist). So it’s all here. Just to say great photos again. Clever take on the themes. Love the peacock and hen dance. Are those bananas white? I have never seen white bananas. Or is it just how the light is on them?

    I likethe ABC idea – is that like teh one David McMahon and Katney and others does? ( Sounds good – and if I can’;t type much I might have to do a few more photos! When does it start? I hope I can keep up with daily – that is quite a challenge!

    I got some “looking through” shots the other day. Might post them sometime soon.

  8. Lilli — thank you!

    Carolyn — those bananas aren’t very tasty I’m afraid. See my comment to Melli (above).

    Kathryn — I’m happy I could send some island sunshine your way!

    Carletta — that is one of my favorite sights, too.

    Dr. John — Great! I’ll look forward to it!

    John — thank you.

    CrazyCath — sorry to hear about your wrist. I answered the banana questions in my responses to both Melli and Les up above.

    As to the alphabet thing, are they doing theirs in photos? I have seen the weekly alphabet meme, but son’t recall one for photography.

  9. Bananas and mangoes on trees and the plate a very common sight for me ..but I hadn’t seen this unusual grey/white colored bananas !!

    Great pics ..bananas mangoes palms all of them 🙂

  10. Shubd — they are actually gray/green — and quite small. They are very unusual.

    Ida — why thank you. And what do you think of my photos?
