Since the summer season is now in full swing, an endless variety of fruits are available for purchase. Summer is the best time of the year to try exotic, uncommon fruits, and explore what nature has to offer you. Here are five unusual fruits from around the world. Have you ever heard of them, or even tried them?

1. Buddha’s Hand: This citrusy fruit is aptly named, since its finger-like sections resemble a human hand. It comes from India and China, and can be eaten as a zest or flavouring since it does not contain pulp or juice. It is very fragrant and can also be used as a perfume.

Everyone should consider adding plants to their house, since the addition of a plant purifies the air and makes you feel happier and calmer. Here are five plants to get you started as a plant owner and caregiver.

1. Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme: Owning herbs is an excellent idea, since they make the house look nice and you can eat them little by little. To plant these herbs successfully, buy seedlings, keep them in separate pots, and keep the soil moist.

2. Spider Plant: An all-time favourite houseplant, the spider plant is very successful at reproducing, and it is a good air freshener. It absorbs common pollutants to naturally detoxify your home. Buy one that has plenty of green foliage and no brown under the leaves.

3. Ficus: This plant has shiny leaves, and stems that can be braided for a pleasant aesthetic effect. This plant likes to be in bright light, and most varieties prefer several days of dry soil in between thorough watering.

4. Snake Plant: This plany is also known as mother-in-law’s tongue. It grows well in a range of lighting conditions, and the air and soil should be kept somewhat dry. Its leaves grow upright – some varieties have yellow or white edges – and it has small white flowers that bloom.

5. Jade Plant: Also called a “money tree” and thought to bring good luck, the jade plant has excellent longevity. It grows slowly and has thick, lush leaves and visually interesting branches. To water this plant, use the “drench and drain” method, which is to allow the soil to dry out before completely soaking the root system again.

As many Canadians know, Canada is full of beautiful places from coast to coast. Cities and towns, landmarks both man-made and natural, and islands and lakes populate this wonderful country. Canada welcomes travellers from all parts of the world to visit and enjoy its amazing scenery, but all Canadians at some point in their lives should have the experience of travelling around multiple places in Canada as well. Canada has so much to offer, so narrowing down a list of Canadian destinations is difficult. Here are just five exciting and vibrant places in Canada to explore this year.

1. Fogo Island, Newfoundland: Fogo Island is Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest island, with a population of almost 3000. A large part of the landscape is the vast, untamed wilderness of rocks, crags, and rushing water. But in the middle of all that, standing in stark contrast to untouched nature, is a modern, sustainable, state-of-the-art inn. Dreamed up by Canadian business woman and Fogo Island native Zita Cobb, this luxurious inn provides a comfortable, colourful, and picturesque stay in a place with majestic views. Fogo Island allows travelers to experience a fascinating mix of old and new, rustic and sophisticated, and bargains and world-class luxury.
