More plants from the back yard

My father is an avid gardener. There are several kinds of plants and trees that grow in the back yard of my parents' home. Here are some pics that I took during a recent visit.

This is the picture of a banana flower where the fruit is about to come out. In fact, the first fruits came out the day after I clicked this photo. This particular variety of banana goes by the name of robusta in Kerala and Morris in Tamilnadu.

These little red chillies are not very spicy and my mother uses these liberally in her cooking.
Isn't it wonderful to be able to walk to your back yard and pick out fresh vegetables and fruits for everyday use?
