Cannot believe it is the end of August already. Here in Panama every day is the same but I fully remember what it was like before we moved. Watching the garden slowly growing old and tired, veggies needing to be prepared and berries needing to be frozen or made into jam or jelly. All the while thinking about next year but knowing I had a lot still to do to prepare the garden for another long winter rest before.
That was another stage of my life, now I look at each new day with new plants coming into bloom like my bougainvillea and orchids ... and I like it. I may not have a garden any more but I still love puttering and discovering.
2014 Panama Gastronomica was such fun this past week. I put up some photos on my facebook page, hope you got to see them. Company comes on Monday night and here until the 10th so expect we will be out again for some meals.

Our Panama site is at WhyPanama.net Moving to a tropical country from Zone 3a in Alberta was sure some kind of adjustment, but one that we are so thankful we did. It has opened up a whole new world of plant material and article opportunities for me.
