Today I came to work at the du Plooy’s office bright and early. As I grogily walked up the hill I came upon a White -Tailed Deer feeding right outside the office. I know this is a common sighting in some parts of the U.S. but here it is a rare and splendid sight. This was more then the morning cup of coffee I was so looking forward to could do to wake me up.
I suddenly became alert to the world around me. As I approached the office, I looked up and saw a splendid fusion of pinks, oranges, and yellows. In bloom right now are a Pink Cassia, Flambouyant, and a Golden Shower, their colours come together so wonderfully. I walked through the office and out front to collect the previous nights sales, here in the jungle we all have our trials with Leaf Cutter Ants; however I must remark on their beautiful trail this morning of yellow from the Golden Shower Tree. No sooner did I look over head into the Pink Cassia tree and there was a Rose Throated Becard couple building their nest. As alway I was amazed of the beautiful world surrounding me. To think I had not even turned on my computer!
