This climate is amazing.

October 28, 2009

My last post was about Tropical Storm Rick and how all my plants had been affected.  Everyone said they would recover, and while I was hopeful, I was somewhat skeptical, especially with regard to the bamboo.  Take a look, above.  I am amazed.

 I guess I knew the banana would do all right, but after just 4 days it already is sending up a new leaf!

The handkerchief plant is recovering already.


This is the bamboo that shows above the patio roof.  Still pretty awful looking.  We have leaves all over the yard and I expect all the brown ones will fall.  BUT, there are some new green leaves, too.  And we have 3 or 4 big shoots coming up from the base of the plants.
(and yes, I will get out there and sweep off the roof before the next rain…)



Share and Enjoy !

More about Nancy

I'm Nancy, a US expat living in San Antonio Tlayacapan, Jalisco after 11 years in Mazatlán, México.

    1. Looking good! Good for you.
      Maybe they would like being cut back a little so they can concentrate on recovering and sending out new shoots. A little abono (fertilizer) would go good too. Do you use those little blue pellets over there too?

    1. Tropical plants in tropical climates are amazing growing machines. I am glad to see they are comming back so soon.

      Keep posting your pictures, and telling us about the warm days down there. It is getting cold here in Washington state. I enjoy your posts and look forwardard to reading about what is going on in your “Mazatlan” world.

    1. Wonderful news, Nancy.!!!

      Snowfall has reached the bottom of the mountains surrounding our Valley – tho none on the Valley roads yet. Won’t be long ….so I especially enjoy your pictures and video posts 🙂 Loved the hummingbird ones. Have watched them several times.

      1. Marilyn, I had cut all the plants back pretty radically, they do need some leaves to soak up the sun. I’ll feed them next week, my landscape friend said wait since they are still in shock a bit…

        Terry, I truly think that you could put a pencil in the ground and it would grow! Ha Ha that’s an old one… I am happy to keep you supplied with Mazatlan pictures for you to look at while you listen to the rain on the roof!

        Islagringo, Yup!

        Mic, I think you might be like Terry, feeling the sun and warm vicariously through the internet! I remember when I was doing the same… Glad you are enjoying the videos, I will probably have something from the day of the dead callejoneada on Sunday. Stay tuned!
