Flower or Fruit ?

My today's post is more of a query.

Firstly I have to admit that for a good part of my life its been my beloved trek partner who has always answered any query related to flowers and their botanical names but since she is not available to answer my query this time I thought let me put up a post and share these pics.

During the past few weeks while cycling i came across this flower, fruit or whatever this is. I was fortunate enough to capture its various stages of growth and I look forward to someone answering my query on what exactly is this?


Stage 1 on day 1


Stage 1 on day 2


Stage 3 on day 4


Stage 4 on day 6


Stage 5 on day 8


Stage 6 on day 11 (where it looks like a normal flower)


Stage 1, 3 and 5 on one branch itself

It is certainly nothing that grows in San Francisco, nor have I noticed it on my travels throughout the world. I may have passsed it and not even noticed, sad to say, because I was looking at something else!!

You've done a wonderful job of documentation at various stages of growth...you should have been a forensic scientist!

That's about as fun as fun gets, but I have no idea what it is. I hope it's edible. I want some!

Totally awesome sequence of photos. Interesting process-we never perceive all of it unless we see it "step by step" as you have done with your photos. Nice. Mickie :)

I haven't the faintest idea what that is, but it is definitely an incredibly cool looking "something".
