Part 2: Gardens in San Miguel de Allende, Not Chacala

Two roof gardens in the San Antonio colonia (neighborhood) of SMA
Sunday morning I walked the dog around the neighborhood where I am staying in San Miguel de Allende (SMA) and took these photos. There are gardens everywhere here, including roofs, patios, driveways and windowsills. It's a kind of startling mix for me: plants I consider tropicals or succulents mixed in with plants I grew in Zone 5.

A shrine to Guadalupe outside El Mercado (at least that's what people said it is called).
Outside a large church with litter from the "running of the bulls" yesterday
