on my way back from the airport to drop off some friends my Mexican cousin and I stopped at his uncles farm and picked some limes....oh the smell in the truck was amazing the rest of the way home. We also got some sweet potatoes.

Another batch of bananas from my back yard

Mangoes from my mango usually don't see mangoes here until late April or May, I believe this tree is doing this just for me, because I am so annoyed with it

It's so massive and the Iguanas are using it as a mating place and as a step ladder into my garden

Every day I have to sweep up fallen leaves, it's a very messy tree and it is shading my garden too much. There have been some talk of trimming it back....a lot, seriously you can see this tree from 4 blocks away it's so tall.

I think it hears these talks and so it giving me mangoes to soften me

Bought 20 plants at the greenhouse a few weeks ago and you can't even tell, nothing is blooming like it should....see  how shady it is?
One in awhile there is one gardenia or one Hibiscus, but never more than one flower at a time 
My land lady invited me up to her house way up on the hill, she has a nice view of the Island

Beautiful and so quiet, If I would have taken a shot to the right more you would see the ocean

I am still eating fish almost everyday at the Old Bull

Roasting tomatoes and chilies for salsa, When I go home I will have salsa on hand everyday, once vegetables are roasted put them in a blender with a few pieces of garlic and some salt...lista!

I have been doing some knitting, a pair of socks for my Mexican sister and a hat for her son. 

"sunset" is a time of day here, when most of us pause and take in God's gift of  pure beautiful, a miracle really.
