What’s the deal with plants that don’t have green leaves. It’s been a long time since Botany 101. I thought that chlorophyll was green! We certainly have a lot of plants here with radically not green leaves, but this one is seriously green-deficient:
As you can see, it does get a few green patches here and there, but the leaves are mostly pale ivory, pretty, but a little creepy, like a blue dog.
Here’s another shot showing some of the green patches:
If there are any plant experts out there that can enlighten me, please leave comments. I Googled listlessly this morning for a few minutes on the subject, but ran out of time, as my gestating network is in danger of being stillborn if I don’t knuckle down and get it rolled out soon.
This huge tour ship was here in Madang a few days ago. I don’t know why they bother. Most of them are here for a few hours only and I’ve often noticed that only a handful of people even bother to get off and walk around. I don’t get it:Poor saps don’t know what they’re missing.
Here, have a sunrise while were at it:We’ve had a drought of sunrises for the last week or so. It has been grey most mornings. Eunie always has the same (getting a little repetitive now) complaint, “It feels like winter today. I don’t like it.” As if she expects me to fix the weather.

Last Saturday, we were tied up in Tab Anchorage out of the wind to catch some sun. These boys came over on a canoe, pretending to fish, but we all know what they were really after:So, I won’t go into that.
