Thank you Rain.

This is what my plants seem to be saying. Everything has greened up nicely and my maidenhair which can be fussy is thriving. I did 108 sun salutations in yoga this morning to work towards a more green Trinidad and Tobago. We are industrializing at such a frightening pace that I wonder where we will be in 20 years. The beauty of these two islands is so amazing that I really believe that Trinbagonians feel deep down that nothing bad can really happen to us. We assume that what we have now will always be here. Not so if we continue along this vein. I take my hat off to all the people who have been protesting the building of not just one smelter, but two, in South Trinidad. They have worked tirelessly to keep this issue in the forefront of national consciousness. I support them but am ashamed to say that I haven't put my money where my mouth is and have not been out to march or protest. Someone in the government remind me why we need smelters on our tiny little island jewels?

The red veins on this acalypha complement the tan and green background and with its serrated edges it is a complete interior design palette.
A perfect slide for an idle lizard.


Hello, hello rain. We have missed you.By noon, this cheerful bloom has packed up show for the day. But don't miss a group of them at 8.00am when they are in full swing.
