On our trip to Mexico in March we saw many unfamiliar and amazing flowers and flowering trees, but it wasn't always easy to tell if they were planted or native. I decided since they were all so unusual for me, a Canadian, that I could only learn from identifying all of them. I wanted to publish all in one bunch-but I'm having trouble with many of them.
Gerard came home from work on Thursday early and wanted to take a drive to one of our traditional haunts-Dry Island. It's a short 50 minute or so drive from home and well worth it. I was thinking most of the autumn colour would be past, and it was, but we and our little dog Hermes easily managed to enjoy ourselves regardless on a beautifully sunny afternoon.
