The new cocoa trees will be planted shortly
it takes about 4 to 5 years for these to mature enough for cocoa pods
the bacano leaves are hung to dry...
they will be used for medicinal tea
the anise hyssop plant is flowering again
I do so love the licorice taste of this herbal plant
this one needs a good cutting back and I'll start more plants with the cuttings
I use both the leaves and flowers to make the tea
good for respiratory problems and digestion
the bees love making honey with the flower nectar
this tiny wren has a most beautiful song that so wonderfully serenades us around the cottage
the "pride of barbados" tree (aka "peacock" tree) is in full bloom, again
this morning...for a few minutes...my heart was caught on a thin string...
( I didn't add that string on the heart, it is part of a spider's web )
when our dog, Shadow, made an escape from the cottage compound in pursuit of another male dog...
that came charging up to the fence to harass him...
they scuffled while I ran out the gate for Shadow
I am happy to say, Shadow heeded my call and left off the pursuit to come back to me
you, good boy, you
I couldn't help thanking the Lord
For this God is our God for ever and ever:
He will be our guide even unto death.
May your day, or night be filled with God's grace.
