Sherry and Sharon, glad you both enjoyed it.

Larry, you would have really liked the gardens. Flying Foxes (Fruit Bats) are fascinating creatures. Unlike bats that get around by echo-location (radar), Flying Foxes use eyesight. But they are really smelly, you notice the roosting colonies from a long way. Their colonies can number up into the millions of individuals. Here's a photo of the airforce using a chopper to scare a colony away from the base.

It's a jungle out there

Well, that is the effect I'm trying to achieve. This cubit is a tale of plants, of gardens, my continuing tussle with Mother Nature, and life in our tropics.
