The gardens are looking absolutely beautiful. Three years of trying this and that, getting cuttings from different places, having neighbors drop off plants that they thought we would like, is really beginning to show. I will try and post a new photo gallery tomorrow of just the different garden areas. WELLLLLLL, this thing bloomed today and I sure wish I could find out what is. It really looks like it was dropped from planet Ziptod. It is some kind of succulent. The petals are leathery and I don’t think it has a very pleasing odor or at least no odor that I can detect. It may be an escapee from “Little House of Horrors”….Any body got any ideas?
I love the mornings, I’m a morning person. Right now I have been getting out of bed about 7, not an unthinkable hour to get up, but in Yelapa at 7am it’s still pitch black, feels like you are getting up in the middle of the night. I go to the kitchen , make a pot of good Mexican roast coffee, then sit in the courtyard and watch the sun come up. If my husband Stephen were here, this would be our “talking time”. I am watching the pelicans. They sit on the rocks pretending to be uninterested, but I know they are in fact, waiting…waiting for the right moment when their little eyes spy a movement of fish near by, then bam…they dive in and come out with a pouch full. They then tip their heads back, drain the water and swallow the whole lot of whatever they caught. They look so clumsy and frumpy, but can fly so low to the water that they are only inches above the surface. They are very gregarious, sitting out there on the rocks gossiping like old men with double chins, pot bellies and little tufts of hair coming out of their heads.
”The Pelican, the pelican, his bill can hold more than his belly can!”
