Inspired by a friend's photo-a-day project. (Not that I need a reason for photographing whatever strikes my fancy.) Also, an invitation to more often observe and consider what unfolds daily.

Nov. 3, 2010 - Day 237
This very odd looking fruit is called Buddha hand, or fingered citron. It's thought to have originated in India and to be one of the oldest known citrus fruits. When I first saw it I imagined that some starfish got mixed up with the lemons at the store. (Michael's been telling me about what he's learning in biology.)
