Figs

I discovered some Calimyrna figs for sale at the grocery store, and bought some to try. I've never eaten fresh figs before. Turns out that I still haven't ~ because I couldn't eat them, they were just too weird. I did take some pictures for botanical interest.

The fruits are actually inside-out flowers ~ "inflorescences" (I learned a new word!)

Obligatory Knitting-Blog Knitting Content: ummm...... I'm still working on the zebra. By which I mean it's still on my bedside table and I'm not working on anything else. It's still black and white and it's still stockinette.
