Epiphytic Bromeliad (?) in a Tree in Chacala
Chacala has gotten a lot of rain this winter, which is very usual for this part of Mexico. But the plants are loving it. Everything is green and lush. Usually the dry season here runs from mid October thru mid-June, but we're getting a break this year. Or at least the plants are. Gringo visitors to Chacala aren't so happy with the rain. Oh well.
There is a plant with redflowers growing in the crotch of this huge Huanacaste tree. I Don't remember seeing blossoms up there before. They look lovely.
I don't know what they are called, but I assume there are from the family of plants hook themselves up to other plants. Epiphytes I am told. I can't remember what they are called and I am not near a book. I am sitting about twenty feet above the ocean, watching the waves and waiting for the sunset.
