Fallen Bugambilia

Fallen Bugambilia

Some trees are again losing their leaves (including the ficus that grows out of the stairway at our house), as well as bugambilia, jacaranda, and flowers of various other trees/bushes/vines/shrubs.  Apparently, this is because we are entering into the another season of sorts in Mexico–the change from “cold” December and January to “hot” April and May (though both of these terms are incredibly relative).  There is a noticeable difference in the weather, with warmer nights, hotter days, and occasional thunderstorms.  In Mexico, the variability in February and March weather is considered “crazy” and unpredictable, hence the common saying used as the post’s title.  In Chicago terms, however, we would probably call this weather “perfect”.
