We have written several times about the amazing house that the Bradys built and are renting to us. It is an incredible blessing to be able to live here. Especially soul-refreshing are the views and the gardens. The rainy season has brought out a profusion of color. In the rare sunshine today, I had to document a little of the amazing bounty God has provided. One day Will said, “This is just the kind of garden I would plant– a jumble of different kinds of plants, all thrown together right next to each other.”
I agree! It is useful, too. There are plenty of herbs and someone, I believe it was Denny, sent some seeds with my dad in October and now we have some wonderful veggies growing– our friends are jealous of our zucchini and basil. Thank you! There are a lot of pictures here– you need not browse all of them. If you recognize some flowers that I have not labelled, please comment so that we can identify them all.
something Cajamarca, which is a city in the north of Peru
lemon verbena– smells good!
huge lavender bush– one of many
mint– lots of mint
Sarah’s giant zucchini
butternut squash in the future
gladiola– My dad always brought these to my mom.
(purple) alfalfa, which the kids call “alpha alpha,” in the background– an important plant for feeding small animals here
hollyhocks– make me think of Santa Fe or Gustave Baumann
