MANGOES, MOTORBIKES AND DISGUSTING BABIES

Disgusting baby!

Rafa just before takeoff on Steve's bike.
Rafa's latest creation.
The mango tree my son Charles planted when he was twelve years old. It shot up and when it reached as tall as he was it stopped growing. We used to tease him and tell him the tree was waiting for him to grow so it could grow too. Then category 4 hurricane Iris came in 2001 and broke the tree halfway down the trunk. We thought it was a goner but we never did pull up the broken trunk and guess what? It started growing again six months later! Well now 8 years later it is finally bearing fruit and is loaded down with baby mangoes! Took awhile but now it's doing fine.
Beautiful bougainvillea - the blossoms are varicolored - white with light green and light pink.


The vine my friend Jose gave me last year is looking lovely too!
