That Ceiba Speciosa bloom is so lovely! Have you bought more veggie seedlings? This reminds me I should visit Fairchild tropical garden again, last time I visited was May. I could not walk too long in that weather. Now is the time to really enjoy the beauty of Fairchild.

Looks like the weather was beautiful for this festival. The witches with the gourds are neat.

We've been to Fairchild Tropical Garden only once and it's my favorite place to visit. I wish I live right across the street from it. Thanks for the memory. I loved the green iguanas all over the place as much as the tropical plants.
