It’s a Jungle Out There! FOTD June 9, 2020


I can’t believe how lush everything is right now, even before the rainy season. This is the view from my studio.

And here’s a closeup:

For Cee’s FOTD

      I wish you could see the dozens of butterflies weaving in and out, Janet. It is hypnotic. It’s starting to sprinkle so not so many now.. just an occasional one zooming by. There’s been a fire smouldering on the mountain not very far from my house for over 24 hours now. Kind of worries me. Probably someone burning off to plant corn..I can see exactly where it is burning and the charred ground where it burned before..Wind changed direction and I can now smell it. Thunder. Overcast. No rain yet.

        Oh, dear — stay safe! Hopefully with thunder comes rain to quell the flames! I hope there’s somebody watching over it, or working to stop forward motion!

          I never saw flames.. just smoke. It seems to be out now just with this small amount of rain.. more a sprinkle.
          There have been times when the entire mountain side all around me was in flame but it was always at least a block away from me. A certain amount of this happens every year when they burn off before planting. I’ve published photos before. One year a visiting friend was so alarmed she moved out and got a hotel room and was furious with me for not leaving. most houses, except a few with palapa roofs, are all tile and concrete so not much to burn.

            A block isn’t far away — but if you’ve seen it before and know that it’s controlled burning prior to planting, I wouldn’t have been angry with you! I’ve never seen flames quite that close!

              Well it isn’t exactly controlled. I’m sure there haven’t been men up there all the time and there are times when I’ve seen them burn for a mile up the mountain from the bottom..This one is a tiny one by comparison but put up quite a bit of smoke before the drizzle seemed to put it out.
