Canna Lilies and Catching Up!

Man! Have we been busy.

Just spent the last few weeks touring our son and his fiancé around Mexico. Alexander has been living is Australia for about 3 years, and that is the amount of time it has been since we have seen him. As this was their first visit to Mexico we covered a lot of ground! Mexico city, San Miguel (Sorry to miss hooking up with my San Miguel buddies, but we were only there for 24 hours) Patzcuaro, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo!

Then I spent a week with a group of orphans from Mexico city, such fun! Blog posting on that coming up.
Hopefully tomorrow!

Canna Lily in Patzcuaro


One of the things that struck me when we got back home is how exuberantly everything in the yard is blooming.
Oh no, gotta thin out the peaches on the trees, before the branches start breaking. Neat thing about peach season, is the the police seem to patrol this area much more often once the peaches are ready. Who would have thought a few peach trees could be considered a security feature!


Canna lilly



I have a variety of plants and flowers below the peach trees to add colour to the yard, some of my favourites are the calla lilies and the canna lilies. Below one tree in the yard I have pretty orange cannas, below another  I have yellow cannas with orange speckles. This year there are new cannas under the tree that seem to be a cross between the two. I think mother nature has been dancing in our yard.

So just a quick note to let you know I am back, and have lots of posts to catch up on!!!
Hopefully I will make it worth the wait.

PS: This is the first post I have made using some new software. I am giving Windows Live Writer a try. Let’s see how it goes.
