Lush Tropical Vegetation


On the way to a humble farmer’s market close to our house to buy some veggies, I happened into this thick patch of emerald green vegetation flanking the banks of a small stream.  It had been raining and the color of water was unattractive to say the least.  However, the green leaves of the trees and shrubs were splendid.

Take a look and enjoy.  This is how Panama City looks like on its outskirts during the rainy season.  Needless to say, I love this season that will extend until the middle of December.  We still have several months of wet enjoyment.

This small stream divides the District of Panama City and the Special District of San Miguelito. We are located on the San Miguelito’s side. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

  1. And there you have it. That’s what our bayous look like, with their brown, or green, or brownish-green, muddy water, and thick, overhanging vegetation. Along with the rivers, they’re the reason we don’t have lovely, white sand beaches, and the reason the Gulf of Mexico is so muddy close to shore. At least our bayous and rivers are flowing now. We need more rain across the state to begin chipping away at our drought deficit.

  2. And there we have LLinda, no matter what they say we live in a small world. We have much to thank this vegetation for to keep the rains coming year after year. Droughts are destroying large parts of our planet and the availability of drinking water is reaching perilous levels.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love rain!
