A few images of the grounds of the Quinta Tesoro de la Sierra Madre

 Bouganvilla growing into
ebony tree
An image from above to below, looking
in the direction towards the Rio Corona
On the left is a powder-puff with red blooms,
and our free-standing rock wall made of malaquite
stones, hauled up from the Rio Corona.  On
the right is a huge rosemary bush that we use
in some of our recipes.
A slightly different view
with a flamboyan tree anchoring
the right margin

The climbing rose
'that ate Tokyo

The north wall of the Quinta, with our
little 2 hp electric water pump.  It's a Spanish
pump, made in Mexico, with a three year
warranty.   It's going on 10 years now.

Our little emerald island of carpet grass. along
with the parrilla and Alvaro's prep table.
This is another corner of our small but
complex "front yard".

These are just a few of the pictures we made during our last stay down at the Quinta Tesoro de la Sierra Madre. We are anticipating quite a bit of further enhancement of all of this, especially in June when the flamboyan trees begin to bloom.

Thanks for your attention.
