Feliz Dia de Madre

Buenoas tardes!
Around Thanksgiving last year I wired a little tin can to the gate. I kept it filled with water and added whatever I could find that was pretty in green or in bloom. Sometime in the new year, not too long after the holidays, I noticed someone else was adding flowers to the can. And this has continued. At least several times a week someone adds a pretty branch of bouganvillea or a spray of pink tufted grasses or a rose. Sometimes a flashy sunflower, a sprig of basil or maybe the orange blooms of a trumpet vine. One day a bright tulip greeted me and I have never seen a tulip anywhere in Alamos. Another day a bright clump of  pink carnations swayed in the breeze coming down from Mt Alamos.

I thought I might get up early this morning for a ride on new old bike and on the way out I would put together a special bouquet for the tin can in celebration of Mexico's Mother's Day, always the tenth of May. And when I looked at the gate this morning look what I found, a beautiful bouquet of pink and red bouganvillea, some lime green field bouganvillea, and spigs from a white flowering and sweet smelling neem tree and other sprigs of greens covered in pale green berries. What a nice start to a beautiful Mother's Day in Alamos!

How wonderful, I love bouganvillea but unfortunately we can't grow it in the UK.
