It's the dry season

Things are really, really dry here now, although it still rains fairly often up on Celaque mountain, so the rivers have a good bit of water in them yet. At our place, there isn't much green to see, except for the pine trees.

Boo took some pictures this week, for fun and to improve her camera skills. I thought I'd share some of those, to document the dryness of the season.

The deciduous trees have dropped most of their leaves.

The grasses are all dried up.

Everything is covered with a layer of dust.

We should have another month of very hot, very dry weather, and then we can expect the rains to return. Everything will turn green, we'll have trouble keeping up with the rapid growth of weeds and grasses, and we'll be fighting to keep muddy dogs out of the house.

Even dry season has some charm.

Good pictures. I come home covered in dust, too.
