     Last time we talked a bit about mango trees, so this time I thought I would dedicate this blog to all of our friends and family who enjoy working in the garden .  (You know who you are!)  This will be a little peek into what plants are like here in Bujumbura.  What you might put in your garden were you living here with us.

     This is a shot going down the hill towards our neighborhood.  You can see Lake Tanganyika in the background.

This is a fan palm. a variety I find beautiful.

                                                               obviously a banana tree

These are strange trees the green ones) whose leaves point down.  The pink flowering tree is a plumeria, the kind of flower that they makes leis out of in Hawaii.

                                           This looks like a 7 foot tall poinsettia bush to me!
