Los Angeles discoveries: Episode 1- Passion Fruit!

I noticed this incredible flower at my sister's house. Turns out it is a passion fruit flower! With further investigation i believe it's the Passiflora caerulea, or blue passion flower, specfically. The fruit it bears is orange with red edible seeds. They don't taste that great, but they don't taste bad either. It is not the same as the more common passion fruit variety you can find in markets. Keep your eyes open, maybe there is a passion fruit flower on a vine near you!

Arden's 3rd Birthday!

Apple Brains just played at a birthday party on the beach in Malibu and it was a great time! Lots of good food, including all kinds of fruit, even a fruit salad with papaya in it, which was an extra special treat. I didn't manage to get any photos of the music, but other people did so once i get them sent to me they will go up on this here Brains-O-Blog pronto!! Happy Birthday Arden! She danced and smiled the whole time, particularly to Apple X3 and A Mango Is A Precious Egg To Be Cherished. At the end she requested I play a "yoga power dance" song as well as a "blanket" song, so we attempted a little improvisation, Arden leading the way with her interpretive dance. Fun!
