Hard to believe it can be so cold in parts of the world right now when it is so warm and lovely here in Panama. At this time of year we pinch ourselves for being so lucky.

Now, we only have two seasons to enjoy here instead of four but we are used to it now. We also don't have time changes to worry about and our days and nights are just about an even 12 hours each. We are blessed with tropical flowers blooming all year round and when it rains during our green season, it usually is a warm rain which is lovely even if you get caught in it.

Giving thanks happens every day here.

And now Christmas....we are very happy not to have snow, and we sure don't miss the shovels and winter tires, nor dressing in three layers to go out.

This will be our 12th Christmas here and we have enjoyed the company of many new friends along the years.

2018 marks my 20th year of taking guests to see gardens around the world and for that I am truly thankful to have been able to share these trips with others who love gardens as well. Many of them have traveled with me on many tours and have become friends.

I hope you are following me on facebook so you can see what I am up to here in Panama and on my travels.
