First Sign of the Season

Things in Cerro Azul have changed since our departure a month ago. It is still tropical and green everywhere we look, but different trees are flowering and fruiting, and it has been a lot rainier.

One thing Cindy exclaimed about on the way up the hill was several poinsettia bushes in the beginning stages of being red and Christmasy. We like seeing them "in the wild"; she once tried keeping a potted one alive throughout the year in WY, and had no luck.

We're not trying to rush the season with this post - we saw a fully decorated Christmas tree in a pharmacy a couple days ago and did not care for it at all. It's just that even the wild plants are making preparations for the season.
