Que pasa? – current news

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know that I have been keeping this Ponsettia alive in a planter for several years now.  It lives most of the year on a shady terrace.  When I move it into the sun, the leaves turn green but timing is everything.  Last year it was too hot and all the leaves fell off.  This year, with late rains and cooler weather, it’s still pretty green with only 10 days to go.  But I think it’s beautiful in all it’s variations.

Happy holidays, however you celebrate.

Peace!

Just started seeing the Streak-backed Orioles this week here at the beach in Costa Rica. He’s the first one each morning to stop in our bamboo, just after sunrise – hence the poor light.

But he’s getting bold enough to visit our deck railing where we recycle our dog fur from the curry comb for nest building. .
