After mango season comes pruning time

This year I had to pruned one of my mango trees hard, it was getting too big for my garden.  This will problebly means that next year I will not get too many mangos from that tree.  I also gave my avocado tree a good trim, this year we didn't get any fruits.  I am not sure if it had to do with the lack of rain during the winter season, but looking around to other trees in the neighborhood and many have few avocados this year. 

One of my neighbors was redoing his garden this week and called me to see if wanted a couple of concrete benches and a old Spanish Tinajon (needs a little paint). I never say no to free garden decorations.

The Firebush tree is back, full of flowers after a hard pruning last month

The summer rain makes the garden so lush,  the different shades of green are so vivid..

The four Caladium plants I introduced to the garden last month have adopted well.

There is always a Bromeliad blooming somewhere in the garden.

This Monarch butterfly picked an unusual place to pupa. She was born on the 4th of July
