Sky Flower fruit

If you look closely you will see rows of small yellow beads hanging from this tree. No this is not a decoration, it is the fruit of the sky flower.

Hi Arati, you commented on my painting blog and I thank you! I am signing on as a follower of your blog and hope you will mine, too. Also, I just want to say that I didn't know fire ants would build in leaves! Here they make mounds in the ground. I hate them!!Your blog is very interesting.
