Summer in Patzcuaro

It is summer in the highlands of Michoacan in central Mexico. It is the rainy season. Patzcuaro and the surrounding countryside are lush and green. We get a year-round crop of avocados in our garden at La Jacaranda, as well as a multitude of flowers. The temperature will get into the low 70s Fahrenheit this afternoon, wonderful for walking around this colonial pueblo at 7200 feet of altitude. Tonight the temperature will drop to about 58 Fahrenheit, good for cozy sleeping with a light blanket. Most days bring us rain showers, but most days also grace us with sunshine. Life is good.
