  4. Not heard of that one before but it looks delicious. And with some honey on top... Cool.

  5. The pear tart sounds and looks delicious. I like the angle you have taken the okra pic from, the flower looks lovely against the blue sky.

  6. Wow! That looks very delicious!
    Thanks for your visit!

  7. Thank you! I still have pears and must try this.

    I forget now what I saw blooming the other day and thought the plant had lost it's mind.

  8. The recipe sounds yummy, thanks! All the years I've been eating okra and I had no idea they produced blooms. That is a beautiful one!

  9. That would be gone real Quick if I was there

  10. That looks delicious. I did an apple tart like that once. It was a lot quicker than a pie and just as tasty. - Margy

  11. Love the different perspective on the bloom!

  12. Your tart looks really yummy. I almost wish it was lunch time already.

  13. Okay, now you are making me drool. That pear masterpiece looks so yummy. I think I will have to try it.

  14. Pears have never been one of my favorite fruits, but that tart does sound good.

  15. That looks so delicious and would be wonderful with he cup of coffee I'm about to have. :)
    LOVELY bloom! I really like the perspective and those lines in the petals are highlighted beautifully in the light.

  16. I've never grown okra before, so I had no idea it had such lovely blooms. The pear tart looks so elegant, but the recipe sounds quite simple--my kind of baking!

  17. Oh my goodness, that dessert looks soooo good! I wonder if you could use apples instead? Either way--yum!!!

    1. Perhaps with apples adding cinnamon to the sugar/flour mixture would be good. I think I'll try that next. Thanks for the suggestion!

  18. Thats a shockingly good looking tart! I am purchasing pears tomorrow!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
