Spring in Ranchito

I love the plants and trees in our yard year round. But it's this time of year when something magical happens. The yard is packed with so many colors.

Let me take you on a tour to show some of my favorites.

One of many hibiscus

The bougainvillea is in full, glorious bloom 

These peachy-pink ones are a favorite of mine

Then again, the red ones are also very pretty

Oranges are ripening up

This lime is ready to be picked and, boy, is this a delicious variety

Another crop of apple bananas forthcoming

Our lemon tree!

Cactus flowers almost ready to pop

Even some orchids have started making an appearance

And just how gorgeous is this?
For those of you still battling snow storms and ice (Jayne and Steve), please know that you will be surrounded by all of this and more in just a couple of weeks. Until then, be warm and safe my friends!


  1. Thanks for the "shout out"..... and hope --- but aren't you worried that we'll bring the weather with us??

  2. I saw your pictures of the snow and just couldn't believe you had to deal with this again. And no, we aren't worried you will bring the weather with you. As long as it isn't snow, all is good.
