Despite being bug-eaten and brutally battered (by San Geraldo’s cyclonic winds), our three beleaguered bottle brush bushes are blooming (along with much more on our terrace and around town). It’s been looking a lot like spring.

This is our one-year anniversary on the beach and I do remember that our first few weeks here were not very pleasant weather-wise; so I expect we haven’t seen the end of winter yet. Temps won’t even hit as much as 20C/68F every day. As a matter of fact, I think tomorrow is only supposed to reach 19C. Woe is us.

BOTTLE BRUSH SLUSHEE! (UNPOLLENATED.)
Maybe I’ll wear my new swimsuit to the beach… Watch the video to see
