I was going through my camera roll today and noticed something in a picture I took back in November. There’s that wedding gown! It’s folded over like a schmatta on the back terrace wall.
How did I overlook that? Easy. I’m distracted by everything else there is to see.
Like they say, it’s a jungle out there.
I don’t know when I have seen a yard in the Centro with more cactus. There’s a cactus tree, something that looks like prickly pear growing over the septic system, and a cactus tree that’s very thick.
I can’t identify anything out there, really, and I’ve never had a head for botany. I just don’t know what anything is called unless it has a plastic tag provided by the nursery. I also don’t want to clear the yard recklessly. Mature trees and plants are a treasure.
One thing I know I don’t have is a key lime tree. But my new neighbor has one. So I’ll need to keep at least one fruit-bearing tree to have something to trade with when I’m in the mood for a gin and tonic.
