2017-10-10 a kid on the road R

I’ve been out on foot a lot this week, and I’ve met some interesting fauna on the road.   I don’t know whose little kid this is, but he sure is cute!

And then there was plaintive mewling from the bushes – turned out it was our cat Teddy, very far from home.

He was scared of the dogs and scared of the cows, and wouldn’t let me carry him for more than a few meters at a time.  Anyway, I did finally shepherd him back to our property where he knows all the other animals.

My first flower photo of the week was of this magnificent handicraft done by Aileen, mother of Kiki’s best friend.   She uses florist tape to put artificial flowers onto a large guava branch which is secured in a plastic potting bucket.

Aileen took her first flower trees to town last week and her first customer bought all five of them.

The living flowers are loving the drought.

The bougainvillea is in full bloom everywhere – a riot of color.

And the plumeria (frangipani) is still pumping out the flowers, even though the leaves are nearly all gone.

It’s still cool at night, but really scorching by day.

May you all have a blessed and happy week.
