But, aren't they gorgeous? Just breathtaking? I'll be making hanging baskets for the mirador when I return to San Miguel. You can bet on it.
It's not that the vegetation is all that different, except in some cases, where I can't identify a tree or shrub, but the SIZE and INTENSITY of the plants and colors are magnificent.
I have no idea what this plant is in the above photo so I took a picture and you can tell me.
In addition there are trees blooming all over Vancouver with tiny white blooms that look like small white orchids. They are huge trees that canopy on many streets. Just awesome.
I must admit, having come from Houston where it is tropical and then come to Vancouver where it is a temperate rainforest - I DO miss trees in San Miguel. At least this many trees. The sizes are staggering.
This IS a beautiful place - especially now when it is warm and sunny.
