Some Flowers Around Chacala

I don't seem to be in the mood to write about gardening right now. But I have been taking photos.This is definitely the rainy season. It started about the 22nd of June and we've had some pretty good storms for far. The power has been out three times already.Last night the lightning and thunder was really wild. Scary and loud. Right overhead. Lots and lots of water. Roof leaked in two places. The patio and my laundry was soaking wet.The town water has been off for 6 days and my tinaco on the roof has been empty for four days. It's kind of a pain.With all the rain, I don't have to water to my plants. Which is fortunate with the town water being off.
I have been transplanting everything out of buckets into the my little garden areas. Still learning about gardening here.

Pulled out my dead little palm. It's dead because my landlord's husband likes to break plants off when he is enebriated. Which is often. He kept breaking off the new central shoot, until the plant finally just gave up. Oh well.

That seems like an odd thing to do, drunk or not! At least he's breaking plants and not your landlady's neck. Nice photos!
