    Smooth as silk

    On my short walk this morning I noticed this, hiding under its bright green leaves, and it did look as smooth as silk.

    They are certainly a smooth flower and it's a nice surprise to see these amongst the Philodendron leaves Toni..

    Thanks Mary Anne, the leaves are from the same plant, a Monstera Deliciosa.

    Looks like you could stick a knife into it and spread it on a piece of bread.
    All constructive criticism accepted with gratitude.

    You are right Jim, it does look like that - It's called the Fruit Salad plant, but it has nasty little sharp bits between the fruit segments. Not worth the effort I think.

    If you wait until it's ripe (the outside shell pieces fall off) and then eat it you don't get any little spikes or sharp bits, they are great tasting
