Fallen Fronds

 Hola. Buenas tardes.
 In the aftermath of a heavy wind the other day, some of the fronds came down from the big palm. I'm sorry I missed the fall, it must have been something of a slide, right down the trunk. We checked for bird's nests, but didn't find any.
We were worried that the fall might have disorganized the bats, but they were out in full wing last night,  spilling from the palm like hundreds of indigo ink dots.  

Below you can see the big Mexican Palm and several of the other palms in the yard, Kings, and Triangles, also known as Pyramid Palms. There are also Dates and Mediterranean and Acacia and Pygmy Palms, all doing well. In fact they are thriving in this heat and humidity and rain.

And above, take a look back to the house.
 If you didn't know what we're up to, well, it might look deceivingly finished.
And I say, it will be, by next summer.
 Okay, gotta skedaddle. It's an Etsy workday for me!
Que le vaya bien!
Linda Lou

How green .... but I guess rain does that. I picture your area like Arizona desert.

All of our storms were the first part of summer and almost nothing for over a month. (south of Vallarta)

Sparks, yes, I will say the Arizona desert is like us. We are green from late June until mid-November, but last year we had lots of chipichipi and stayed green well into December.
