A Taste for Sausage?

Sausage Tree Postcard

Two weeks ago I posted some pictures of a "sausage tree." It took me nearly an hour to identify the tree as it was not a native of Hawaii where I saw it and I had no idea what it was. I jokingly named it a "hanging potato tree" which isn't all that different from its actual name.
A week later I stumbled across a postcard of the same tree in one of those small world moments. I guess now I'll be seeing hanging sausages wherever I look, especially when I'm hungry. Here is another one of my photos of the fruit and flowers of the tree.

Too bad sausage doesn't grow on trees.

I fully expect to see my first sausage tree sometime over the weekend. Very cool story. Happy PFF! :)

And I was SO sure that was a corn dog tree!

This is hilarious! I'm going to run and take a peek at the trees out my window. One never knows!
