Abel the yard guy toted off the detritus on Saturday from my autumnal trim of earlier in the week. All is looking good and orderly, as I like it.
That’s a tequila maguey in the foreground, some other kind of maguey (the yellow and green) farther on, and the nopal cactus tree and bananas in the right corner.
All were cut down to size by me. One must show plants who’s boss.
After almost a decade in this house, I’ve grown accustomed to the racket of the locals, having learned ways to cope. I like living here, and wish I could have lived here all my life.
