Custard Apples & Little Critters.

After I have harvest the first 2 fruits from my Custard Apple plant, I trimmed off all the branches. Even though it was planted in a big pot, it grew tall. To control its height, I cut and shortened the plant.
Very soon new branches started to grow and once again it was covered with lush leaves.
Then followed by many small buds.
Hopefully, some of these will not drop but will turn into fruits.
Ahh! I caught sight of one small fruit here!
And another 2 fruits further up!
After some time, it grew to this size.
Another one up here!
Keeping a look out. This one is going to ripen anytime now.
So is this one!
I received some baby Adenium plants from a friend.
These are all grown from seeds.

The following photos are for joining Saturday's Critters.
This week the focus will be on these tiny critters.
A baby grasshopper on my garden fence.
Another grasshopper clinging onto my papaya tree trunk.
A baby dragonfly on the side wall.
This butterfly came into my hall and landed on the floor.
We were in a car show room looking at some new cars. Spotted this lizard on a brand new red car. It too wanted to show off its beauty!

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

A lizard can be caught with the hand,
yet it is found in kings' palaces.

  1. Great and fun insect pictures! We do not have Custard apples here. They do not look like a regular apple, maybe they are some other kind of fruit...

  23. Your custard apples look good and healthy even it was sustained as pot plant. There’s a custard apple tree in front of our house, outgrown from the neighbour’s house, but it rarely ripe fruits because the monkeys destroy the fruits or it become parched.

    And nice click on critters and one should be careful with grasshoppers as they eat plant leaves… I have seen those redesigning leaves at our home plants.

    1. Thank you, Jeevan. We don't have monkeys here but we do have birds and insects. I am always on the lookout for grasshoppers, so far they are not a big threat.

    1. Hi Sallie, I welcome the butterflies and dragonflies into my garden but not the grasshoppers or lizards because the grasshoppers will eat up some of my plants and lizards can be a nuisance in the home.
