Photos from my Isla garden

One of my few plumeria blossoms from when we arrived in November.  Then the leaves fell off and now in March they are growing again.  I can see a few buds but I won’t be here to see them bloom.  Last year it was warmer and I did get to smell that lovely fragrance before we left.

Sadly this is the papaya tree that died but we now have two more on the go. Hope to be eating our own fruit next season.

My potted poinsettia were growing but then the heat got to them and now they are just a memory.

A personal favorite. I do hope that this one survives all the wind and the salt air.

I love how my bougainvillea are dressing up my fan palm.

Colin wants to remove the mat over the gravel and put in a brick sidewalk.  Who knows what next season will bring?

Not sure if this is the kale or the swiss chard germinating. I have no idea what the white things are but we have had some strange things growing in the pots in which we used the soil we brought in from Palm Springs.

A pot of kale and one of swiss chard.

Two more pots in the back and I have 2 smaller pots on the side.  Too bad you weren’t here to help eat this before we leave.

Did I show you this before?  It is one of our smaller iguanas feasting on the flowers in my pots on our beach stairs.

These mangoes are not from my garden but don’t be surprised if I get a mango tree soon.

    Contessa,
    Your garden is what makes your site shine so bright. I wonder if everyone makes theirs so beautiful.
    I really noticed your Bougainvillea in your Fan Palm the other day when you posted pictures of your surprise visit from your longtime friends back from when you two were RVing in Acopoco. It really caught my eye.
    My favorite of your Hibiscus is the white with the deep red, pink and yellow.

    Beautiful garden, lovingly tended. Our site looks like we are only staying for a night! I garden all summer and find I don’t have the interest in it here however I still enjoy all the beautiful flowers that “other” people grow.
