Happy 10th blogoversary to me!

Believe it or not, I’ve been posting my top fave photos on this blog for TEN YEARS! In honor of the occasion, I think I’ll post a photo of me, which I never do, taken by a friend on my recent trip to San Miguel.

Thank you, dear reader, for your friendly visits, and especially your comments. Right this minute, there are 24,319 comments in the blog. And not one comment—not even one!—has ever been anything but kind, sometimes insightful, and occasionally even admiring. What a different world from some other online spaces. Thank you all. Here’s to another ten years.

Me in Mexico in February.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?

Opuntia cactus

So much fun at the Botanical Garden (El Charco del Ingenio Jardin Botanico) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Here is a close up of a nopal cactus. Spiky!

Nopal cactus (Opuntia or prickly pear) getting ready to fruit, I think.

Colorful San Miguel shop

One of the pleasures of travel is shops like this. So entertaining, just to see the colors.

San Miguel view

San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has a few rooftop bars with a view. Here are the churches of the Centro viewed from the top of the Rosewood Hotel at dusk on a warm February evening.

Aztec dancers

Got back recently from a trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. My sister had a big party. There were dancers! Have you ever seen costumes anything like this?

Here is a short clip of them in action

Enjoy!

Pink lily macro

This year’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle is now a Festival, not a Show. Not sure if their hashtag #NWFGS is still a thing.

Here’s a magnificent Oriental lily, complete with pollen-laden anthers.

Sometimes florists remove the pollen-heavy anthers because they do stain clothing. But I prefer them with a natural look.
