Fruit and Flower Tour of Our yard

Backyard/Papaya Tree


Heath gathering our ripe fruit... the banana tree is in our backyard, you can see it behind his hand that is holding the bananas. Notice the garden behind him "before."


The garden "after" we spent 5 hours getting it ready for planting.
We went to the nursery and picked out our babies...
tomato, chilies, Thai basil, and green onion. We also bought seeds to plant.

The pile of leaves we left in the bottom right of the picture are covering our wild chicken eggs, we wondered what the mama was doing in our back yard while we were tearing out the plants and weeds, I guess we were upsetting her nest... oops.














Look closely below... the light, dusty green is not part of this tree... it is an epaphite, or an air plant... it receives all of its nutrients from the air and just hangs out in the crevas of this tree.

These are the two flowers that land on our cars... they are so beautiful.


These are not on our property but ones we took our first couple weeks here.

Rhianon & Heath,

Hello you two. Enjoyed the pictures. Rhianon, the picture you took w/the flower on you car & you were unsure of what that was. Well it's a plumeria flower. They come in an array of colors and are soooooooo beautiful. Can't wait to come visit w/you guys & vice versa, we'll be so close. Love you two.

Tam, Nyoka & Dominic

P.S. Dominic is really getting big, too.
