Springtime in Merida?
As we get ready to head down to Merida for a few quick days, all of the sprouting and blooming going on here makes me wonder what gardening will be like in the Yucatan's warmer tropical climate...will the seasons still be as notable, and will the variety of plants be as broad? I pore over the posts about Jonna's garden, Theresa's vegetables, Joanna's beautiful pictures, and read Naturalist Jim Conrad's newsletter to learn what I can.
On this trip, I will definitely be watching out for what is growing and blooming in Merida's gardens...if only because our garden here has gotten me thinking about planting and growing earlier in the year than I usually do!
