The rainy season is slowly giving room to the dry season and we’ve been spending more time out in the garden and at the park with the kids. It had become necessary for D to buy himself a spade and he has consequently been digging holes ever since, planting here and there. A new hobby of ours is to rescue discarded or unwanted plants and give them a new chance in life. For example, the unpotted palms that where left in the sun to dry or the -yet- unknown plants that was repeatedly cut at the root by the lawn mower (we dug the roots out and planted them on our side of the garden wall).
My favorite. A bit of a cheat because this one on the picture is growing against our garden wall but on the church’s property. We do have a few saplings growing along our fence too (yay!), but no flowers yet.
The “famous” lil’ red flower , voici la p’tite fleur rouge (florzinha vermelha) 🙂
These pretty little flowers grew by themselves a bit everywhere in our garden among the wildness that it was before D took care of the grass. Our guess is that the previous occupant had some of those flowers that had seeds carried by the wind.
