A little past prime...

I was picking okra, or what's left of it, this morning in my garden.  Okra seems to grow at least three inches every night.  One day a flower, the next a lovely little green okra ready to eat.  No matter how often I pick, I always miss one.  I will notice a stalk on the ground and sure enough, a gigantic okra at the end of it!  Although inedible......it was such a lovely shade of green, I decided to paint it. A little past it's prime but still valuable!
