(For a bit of fun, every Friday our Plant Records Manager, Chris Bisson, the guy who maintains all the recorded information on our plant collections, will do a regular blog slot where he recommends his favourite “plant records” – that is, songs that are in some way linked to a plant. (Do you see what we did there?) )
‘Pineapple Princess’ – Annette Funicello (1960)
The Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is one of the tastiest Bromeliads around! They don’t grow on trees but grow on the ground! Sweet, sticky and scrumptious!
Annette Funicello was originally discovered in 1955 by Walt Disney, and went on to star in many of the amazing beach-based film classics of the 60′s including ‘Beach Blanket Bingo’ and ‘Beach Party’
Hanging out on the beach and eating pineapples sounds like a cracking combination to me!
Have a great weekend!
