Here a Moo, There a Moo, Everywhere a Moo, Moo…

No, we don’t have a farm but we do live in the campo and it is the tail end of Estación Seca and that’s means the vacas are looking for something, anything green.  And so, when the lovely, lush greenness of our yard tweaks their olfactory nerves after feeding on dry, brown grass they mosey on through the campo:

This brings great enjoyment to Dos Gatos who like to sit by the fence and watch the show:

To try to keep the plants alive in the garden during the driest time of the year SU has to water a few times a week.  He’s quite proud of his latest toy:

The last couple of week’s some of the birds have come to know that just before dusk they may be able to have a bath and get a drink of water and so we have some regular visitors:

There are plants that do very well in Dry Season and surprisingly bloom abundantly like Bougainvilleas.   Our White Bougainvillea has begun spilling through the fence:

This plant that is hiding something…

A Pink Antherium bloom under the leaves:

We’ve planted a few of these Blue Skyflower vines around the house now, one on an arbor and new ones along one side of the fence.  This one is just a few months old and is blooming like crazy:

And some of my favourite plants, the Plumerias are in full bloom.  This is one of our latest additions:

When we wake in the morning and we can sometimes “smell” the change in the weather coming.  The air is increasing in humidity making the high temperatures seem even hotter.  The gray skies roll in the morning bringing hope that we’ll get a little rain sometime soon.  Unfortunately it’s bypassed us so far but hopefully in the next couple of weeks we’ll get a few drops.  But then we remember with the rain comes the bug, frog and toad hatchings and then think that we should be careful what we wish for in the campo.

      That was a lesson to show my hubbie how to use a different focus. The pictures he was trying to take were nowhere near as dramatic but he was pretty pleased with that one. Boys and their toys you know!

      Gracias. Vacas have been notably absent the last few days. I hope that means that the rest of the palms and plants are safe for a while.

I'd love to hear from you!
