gardens and flowers.












Everything that is blooming now are dry season flowers, with only a few exceptions where gardens are watered all the trees that are blooming now have not had rain since the rainy season that in most places ended in September. There is also a wonderful botanical garden behind the main cathedral which offers tours twice a week which features plants from all the varied areas of the state of Oaxaca. (Remember you can click on any of these photos to view a larger version or download if you like.) The first purple blooming tree is perhaps my favorite that blooms at this time of year. They stand out from the dry season landscape, you can even see them from the plane as you come into Oaxaca, the name of this tree is the jacaranda.
