Wish upon a star

We caught a glimpse of last night's lunar eclipse, the sky was clear and it was a great show! Sorry, no pictures of it... Will the star fruits and cashews do?

In time: Geraldo just posted some great pictures of the eclipse on his blog e-postcards! Click here to see them!

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Thanks Cris for remembering Pinocchio! :-))

Great photos! That reminds me I'll be in Fortaleza this weekend: huge cashews there!

Great colors and shapes....

I thought the eclipse was amazing and stunning. Sadly I don't have any pictures either. I was driving down the road having to watch it from the car.
I love your pictures. I know little about star fruit but I think it makes a spread look like so much fun!

Great photos !!! Fresh fruit .
We could see the eclipse too. A few hours ago it rains all the time.
Yes, the fiels are green here but the trees are not green and blossomed.

Your pictures do perfectly :-)
We also saw the moon eclpise, in Norway. It was great. I was so surprised to see the moon as a huge orange ballon.

We missed the eclipse. Hadn't heard about it. I guess we should watch the news more often.
The star fruit and cashews are so interesting. I'm loving all your beautiful pictures.
Is the cashew attached to a fruit? I've never seen that before. Most unusual.
Cris, I don't know the bread you mean at Outback. I've only been there once and that was a few years ago.
The only unusual Aussie bread I can think of is "damper". Could that be it?
Where did you learn to speak English so well?

the start look really edible , how do they taste sweet or sour

Cris said...

Thank you all for your nice comments. There are two types of start fruit that I know of, sour and sweet, and the sweet one makes great juice! The cashew also makes great juice, and the seed makes the cashew nut, which is considered both a seed and a nut, and it is outside the fruit.

I saw almost the whole eclipse, as I was driving in the car and the night was clear. Beautiful pics, cris, and I love the ones of the red moon.
