We arrived home just as a beautiful, soft rain shower began the other day. I opened the curtains and caught a hummingbird playing in the rain. He played and played for about thirty minutes. Such a blessing to simply watch his joy. Continue reading

The other morning on my walk I discovered this sweet sloth. My gaze wandered around the tree top and rested on ... what... I called hubby to come out and verify . We see wildlife often but it always surprises me. You never know what will cross your path at... Continue reading

The day after Christmas was a magical one around here. White fronted parrots greeted me on an early morning walk. Then this little critter, an opossum came walking right up to me. He stayed around long enough for me to go get hubby and return to the forest. I've never... Continue reading

Halloween isn't a traditional holiday in Costa Rica thus the ridiculous price of pumpkins found at Walmart earlier this week. No trick! No treat either! Yes, you can have a cindirella pumpkin for 13, 970 colones, $25.29 at today's exchange rate. Since moving here over ten years ago we've seen... Continue reading

A flock of white fronted parrots has been coming around the house lately. These birds love to chatter. It's been rather loud in the early mornings with the young birds calling out to the adults who are teaching them stretch their wings. Continue reading

Volcan Turrialba is spewing ash all over the central valley again. The only thing we noticed at our house was rainbow clouds the other morning. I'm thinking the ash in the air caused the effect as I haven't see it before. My brother and I were in the city during... Continue reading

The myth has been proven a fact! Agouti aka guatusa do plant seeds wherever they go. I caught one in action yesterday. This morning there were two gardeners! Hard to see the second in the shrubs. This guy saw our dog and made a mad dash into the brush. Continue reading

One of my favorite things is chasing butterflies. We've planted plenty of flowers around the yard to attract them. It's not always easy getting photos but I enjoy my time outside trying. A simple pleasure that brings much joy. Continue reading

This year has been an interesting one to say the least. The reason I haven't kept up with the blog is due to health reasons. It's taken months, eight to be honest for us to finally find the problem and begin to deal with it. What we thought was out... Continue reading

Our first lemon tree is over loaded this year. Looking forward to harvesting next month. We found planting here to be hit and miss. We always buy at least two of everything and plant in different areas on the property. One usually makes it. We have a second lemon tree started from seed that is doing well but hasn't produced fruit yet.
