Not long ago, I wrote a post on bromeliads and mentioned that the pineapple is a bromeliad. This morning on our visit to Trader Joe's, they had an enormous table full of organic pineapples, as pictured above.
The pineapple has long symbolized hospitality and welcome! It also is a symbol of luxury. This is because they only grew in climates like Hawaii. They were rare in Europe and very expensive, when available.
Pineapples were also a symbol of beauty. Look at the symmetry of their outer shell and perfectly spaced they are in outlined. As they ripen they turn yellow.
Happy Friday Everyone
