Sun and Rain
Alternating days of rain and sun for the past few weeks have been a blessing for the plants. Many of our earthbound green friends have been actively photosynthesizing and have grown significantly. The pigeons enjoyed a snack of rice, given by Don Domingo. Lining the walkways of the garden are narcissus flowers blooming, and gladiolas preparing to bloom. Today Carlie harvested oregano, mint, tarragon and cilantro from the garden. These herbs have survived the winter and are entering their productive phase again with the lengthening of the days. The blueberry plants have sensed the arrival of spring, and have their first small fruits. The Nopal cactus, taking a cue from the blueberries about the arrival of spring, have awakened and are sending out tasty shoots that will soon be grilled, salted, covered with lime and wrapped in a corn tortilla.
