(Make sure you swipe to see both pics!  Love that instagram feature.)

PUERTO RICO IS GOING TO THE FINALS IN THE BASEBALL WORLD CLASSIC!

Now, back to regular programming;  this spring is looking good on mother nature.  Found our mango tree blooming like it’s a competition.  Everyone is going to be getting mangoes.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I love that mango tree not only because it gives the most delicious finer-free mangoes, but because my grandfather himself grafted it with pineapple.  The taste of those mangoes used to bring people here from all over the island when he was alive.

Trees are one of the best gifts in a family.

I’m so thankful for every participation last week;  I couldn’t go around everyone’s blog to comment because I had a virus that had me in bed just moaning and whining but THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Exploring.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Living in the mountains we used to enjoy rainy days out exploring. It’s one of the very few things I miss from The HardCore Country Life.

All you wonderful participations of last week, THANK YOU! You can go check each other out clicking the links:

bent tree bark

Would you look at this friend trying to escape from his house?!  I had to stop and do some pics because it was just so curious.  Also kinda looks like an alien’s octopus foot.

Really nice “spots” in the bark.  Have no idea about the name of this though, if any of you do chime it in the comments 🙂

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO SHARED YOUR POST LAST WEEK! Go check each other out:

The National Circus of Puerto Rico, fantastic every single time.

I’m featuring their outfits, all their clothing was so rich in texture.  There was at least one item of each performer that I wanted for myself.

I apologize for not immediately linking last week’s participations;  Little J is staying home from school to recuperate from a weekend fever and we have a lot of important games to play today.  I’ll link all participations tomorrow, but thank each and every one of last week’s contributors.

Edited to add participations!

Have a beautiful day! And share a bit of it with Tuesday’s of Texture!

The weather got confused last week and instead of the normal cold we are supposed to have in February (our coldest month of the year) it gave us the best sunny, pleasantly breeze summer days and boy, we were all over that.

I decided whenever the weather cooperated we were going to do a beach day – even if it meant after school, which is a little bit tricky because sand in the car, bags to carry, wet things… and I’ve been known to melt down because the seat got an inch spot, so you know… bit of a gamble.

We are back to normal this week.  The ocean is fierce this morning and it’s already raining, so I’m clinging to this photos like a sloth to their tree.

THANKS to every single participation last week.  There are some terrific images in there, do go check them out:

Have a great day!

Root in rock.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Sat beside this on a recent trip. Spent my ten minutes there worried that a lizard would confuse me with a tree branch because, of course they cannot tell the difference.  Says the bilogist. (Me.)

Also wondered how that tree part/root part/part?  Grew there.

Went on a tiny hike on the weekend. It was supposed to be a bike excursion but, bikes were not permitted (and it was trip to get there, mind you) so we made it into a hike trip and pretended to be PJ Masks in the forest because that is the correct way to hike, I think.

We fought orange lava, imaginary crocodiles, dinosaurs (actual iguanas) and villain insects.

During snack time we were sitting in the car and I heard my mom gasp.  She pointed towards the trees were I just saw the fattest iguana I have seen to date.  I have a pic too but I’ll add it later because I left the camera in the car.  

 I stared at that thing until we got out of there, afraid that it would jump us for food.  Or for FUN.

Do check out last week’s participations, and thank you peeps for sharing your posts with us!

Beachy texture.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Last Friday Little J and I threw all schedules to the wind and decided it was a great day to play in the sand after school.  Oh, it felt so good to enjoy the sea breeze and feel the sand in our feet!  And I mean, she had her tennis shoes filled with sand and I had my dressy sandals wrecked.  Totally worth it!

Do go and check out last week’s participations, THANKS everyone!

Fossilized rock. Is that a leg peeking at the left?  I only saw after I took it.  Thankfully.
