We are in the midst of a visit from the UK– Nick’s sister and brother in law are in PR for the first time and if planning one’s second trip in the middle of the first is any indication, I think they like it! 

Yesterday we took a trip up the La Ruta Panorámica to Maricao to visit Montoso Gardens, a massive botanical garden, tropical flower and fruit farm, and nursery.  David Brunner took us around on a wander, showing us amazing Haliconias (including a very furry specimen) and other tropical plants.  We will be back in touch with David once we’ve finished our construction to place an order for some plants.
