    Oh yummers! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a great big tree in the yard so any time can have when we get the urge? Lychee heaven!

  5. Me, too! Do you know, I’ve never even had a fresh lychee? Always canned! Where’s you get those from?

    Also, loquats. I NEED loquats.

    PS I’m so glad you enjoyed your drive out Hood River way, and my photos, too!

    Your post and the comments are making me know I am missing something very fine in life-tropical fruit. I don’t know what that is in the bowl-lychee-I guess I’ve heard of it-boy do I sound like a hick!-but never saw one or anything….The flowers look so beautiful.
    Love your visits to my bloggie.
    Love, Debra
