The last time I studied plants was in 9th grade. I carefully collected, identified, pressed and dried one-hundred-and-nine different plants ("No grasses," Mr. B said, "they're too many of 'em."). I compiled them into a 9x11" scrapbook of sorts. If I had to do that here, I'd need a larger book. Big is often the theme (with bugs too) here on the island. Some friends of ours took us to their back patio (no worries, they're not mafia) to show off their collection of the island's flora.

 The avocados are enormous and cheap. Did I mention they were cheap?

I wish Mr. B were around. I'd be able to tell you what all of these beautiful plants are. Perhaps y'all can fill us in.
