Two days ago we published a post showing the coconuts growing in our yard. We received a lot of feedback and additional questions about coconuts and coconut palm trees.
One of our friends pointed out that another blogger had published a post entitled, “Where Baby Coconuts Come From” that very day. I went to that site and learned a great deal more about coconuts and their propagation. Rather than simply repeat some of the facts from that post, I refer you to this excellent post by Thewanderlustgene: http://thewanderlustgene.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/where-baby-coconuts-come-from/
I thought I would share some of the photos that I took when gathering the pictures for our post on coconuts that did not make it into the original article. These photos show some of God’s creatures that live in or profit from the coconut palm fronds and flowers.
That is it for today’s tour of the coconut palms in our little yard.
Life is good in Ecuador!
