Pink Saturday - Guava blossom

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!

Beautiful pink blossoms on a guava plant growing in my friend F.'s garden this spring. Isn't it pretty?

Guavas originated in Mexico and Central America, but now they grow throughout the tropics, having spread there naturally, and by humans who found them so delicious.

Guava paste is very popular in Caribbean and Latin American culture, and because we have family in Tampa, Florida, we often receive round, flat tins of guava paste in care packages for the holidays. Guava paste and cream cheese is a nice combination to spread on a cracker. Or you can layer them between two tortillas and heat in a hot frying pan. It's a guava quesadilla!

Comfort food indeed - and it's pink!

You captured every single detail of that guava flower, every one. Just when I think I have seen most of the blossoms of flowers, a new one pops into my life. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Please stop by and let me share my PS post with you. Country hugs, Sherry

I've never tried guava paste, but anything with cream cheese on a cracker must be good! Happy pink Saturday! :)

Mmm. Guava paste is yummy.
But not so great at gluing things.

One of the most heavenly things on Earth is guava and cream cheese! I didn't know the guava blossom was equally as heavenly. I know you've been to Versailles for Cuban food, right? Mmmmm. Guava and cream cheese.

Beverly said...

Glennis, you've made me want some. I grew up in the land of guava. And, I've had some melt in your mouth guava and cream cheese filled pasteles. I'll imagine that I am having one with my coffee right now.

Of course, something divine would come from such a divine bloom. Happy Pink Saturday.
