There is hope of spring being around the corner here, after all it’s the first week of March, but since it remains frozen solid outside I’m still pulling from the Cuban flower collection for a few more weeks! Again, I’m not sure what these are, but they line the roads in Varadero, hanging subtly from […]

They are delicate, beautiful and everywhere and are aptly names resembling small butterflies. Another friend has shared photos of these from the Pacific coast of Mexico. The picture below […]
