Welcome to the Tropics!
Posted by F&S
Last week was so hot and humid. The air was very thick and we Frenchies felt so sluggish. One afternoon, it started to rain and we thought things would cool down. However, it seemed to only make it feel more tropical.
1 Boy it's really steamy and feels so tropical out here. Just look at all that moisture!
2 Sharkey, because it's so tropical, why don't we go see Martha's tropical plants?
3 Franny, this cut leaf philodendron is covered with rain drops.
4 Would you have a look at this!
5 Hello there insect! What's your name?
6 What are you doing to that leaf? Whatever it is, it doesn't look good!
7 I don't know why Francesca is wasting her time talking to a destructive Japanese beetle. I'll just go and see the rest of the tropical jungle.
8 I hear they call this a century plant. Does that mean it lives for 100 years?
9 And they make tequila out of the agave plant. Why can't I taste anything?
10 My goodness Francesca, these must be Figs! Do you think they're ready to eat?
11 Sharkey, they don't look ripe yet and you know how much Martha loves her figs. Better leave them alone.
12 I love this giant banana plant.
13 And this cycad is stunning.
14 The oxalis at its base is so pretty.
15 Sharkey, I'm tired out from all this heat. I think it's time to go inside where it's cool.
16 Franny, I couldn't agree more. I need a nice cool drink.
