Everyone thinks my garden finial is a pineapple.
It didn’t look like a pineapple to me, so I did some research and conclude it’s a pine cone.
I’ll have more to say about pine soon.
It’s a pineapple. Pine cones don’t look like that. Pineapple filials are symbols of wealth, of the kind of people who can afford fancy fruits from the tropics in their houses. Pine cones are symbols of people who don’t have anything to eat. Ever eat a pine cone? Most parts are edible, says Euell Gibbons, but you wouldn’t know that if you weren’t starving to death.
Revel in your pineapple.
No, Reggie, it is not a pineapple. But you may certainly provide further evidence for me to examine.
I’ve never seen a pine tree with leaves. Pineapples grow from the ground up. Those aren’t pineapple leaves, to be certain, but it’s a fancified imaginary pineapple. Using google images, on the whole this looks more like a pineapple finial than a pinecone finial, but there are a lot of similarities that suggest that the makers weren’t too finicky about accurately replicating any fruit.
Either way, I wouldn’t recommend eating it.
You’ve been away from the Pine Tree State for a long time now. Not everything on Google can be trusted. Nevertheless, have it your way.
Only if you will have it your way as well.
