(Click on photos to enlarge.)

Drove to Quinta San Carlos for the afternoon with friends Xill and Bethany. Beautiful setting. Couldn’t show the water lilies without their surroundings.

Bougainvillea for FOTD Jan 23, 2023

For the past 5 years or so, these bougainvillea bushes I planted on my side of my wall 21 years ago have extended far above the wall and bloomed primarily on my neighbor’s side of the wall. Although they enjoy them immensely, and I welcome them to the view, finally this year the blooms on my side of the wall are profuse as well!!!! Thanks, nature, for finally taking my needs into account.

Leftovers: FOTD Jan 18, 2023

these are the remains of two other bouquets I’ve had for 11 days. I combined them to make a new bouquet. Good old mums and Gazanias. The sunflowers and roses have all expired.

Garden Scene with Flowers: FOTD Jan 16, 2023

Sometimes flowers are the stars, at other times the supporting cast. This view is from the garden of a friend’s residence in Ajijic.
