During the hot, dry months of summer I dream of rain, but it’s hard to imagine that now. We’ve had a procession of wet, gray days, so when the sun came out this morning, it was intoxicating. Everything looked lovely.
We had our one freezing week in January, so the semi-tropical plants are all withered and demoralized- poor banana, taro, tree tomato and even bouganvillea. The aloe and passion fruit outside the greenhouse, on the other hand, seemed quite content:
The narcissus in the same neighborhood are making their appearance among some pots of succulents:
And the fruit is finally ripe on this lanky young lemon tree:
In the distance, the mountain hid behind a cloud. (That’s Baki’s bathtub in the foreground.)
The dizziness is subsiding now, as we’re losing the sun to cloud cover, but I hope we’ll be enjoying another sunny morning before to long.

Our climates are so vastly different. Thanks for giving us a brief glimpse of yours. I never tire of posts like this. They’re always so interesting.
Thanks so much for your comment; I have to admit, I sometimes feel self conscious to be talking about the weather…
