In the Garden at La Jacaranda, Patzcuaro

Arriving at night, we are greeted by magnificent floripondios (datura) that flourish just outside our bedroom. Their scent wafts in through the window at night. This perfume is said to make one sleep more deeply...a Patzcuaro soporific.

The flowering maple is covered with hundreds of small flowers that hang like bells. The humming birds favor these blossoms over all others in our garden.

After the summer rains, wildflowers blanket the countryside. The faces of these mirasoles (cosmos) in adoration follow the sun.
