Our Home

As promised here are a few pictures of the outside of our home. The grass was cut the day I took the pictures and when they cut the grass here they use a weed eater and take it down to ground level but in just a couple days it is green and thriving again. The first picture is the view we have from the back deck. Unfortunately the picture does not do it justice.

This is looking at our back deck.

This is one corner of our property that has a giant pear cactus, palm tree and monster lemon tree growing on it with a lily in front.

This lily puts up three stalks of flowers with 8 to 15 blooms on each.

Side view of our house.

This is the front with some of our collection of plants. 

These are the neighbors chickens which love to come to our property looking for a snack.

Hope you enjoyed these and my next post will be an update on our Hummingbirds with hopefully a video attached if I can figure out how to do it.

Long Overdue

Yes this post is long overdue but life has not been treating me very kindly the past number of weeks but I am back now feeling much better. For this post I wanted to post a couple more orchid pictures but one of these are different than my regular orchid pictures because one of the these is growing on the May Apple Tree that is growing in our front yard. Also there are pictures of what is growing all around the trunk of the tree. On the next next post I will post a picture of the front and surroundings of our home in Panama.

The orchids on the tree.

 This is where the orchids are on the tree.

Here is the whole side of the tree.
