    Hi Marilyn, such a variety of pictures & so interesting. I’ve been looking for the name of that tree but have found nothing, unless it’s a variety of Ficus, the leaves look the same, but the flowers are completely different (though the same color).
    Best wishes, John & Ann in New Zealand.

    • Hi Ann and John,
      So nice to hear from you, and thanks for the nice comments and information. I have a book here about tropical flowering plants, so I looked up ficus, and it said there are 500-800 varieties! But that definitely gives me a starting point. The guide that sometimes goes on the Friday hikes with us is quite plant knowledgeable, so I can ask him about local varieties of ficus. In all my time in Mexico, I have learned that people seldom know the names of plants.
      As you well know, I am extremely behind in writing…so I’ll get off my butt and write a proper letter.
      Ann, I am knitting my first pair of toe-up socks, class from Craftsy.

  3. Great pics, as usual Marilyn! Thanks for sharing and appreciating the artistry in your surroundings!

  4. Great photos. The second photo from the top is my favorite one.
