Mauricio, our Colombian gardener, continues with his work. He gathered a few cronies after their day was done at other houses, and over the past few days, completed the small retaining wall at the front that was required after the sidewalk went in and left our grass hanging in mid-air. I plan to see if our development will pay the $150 needed to accomplish this, as it is their fault that the wall was necessary! This coming week, Mauricio says our cement patio should be done. We talked about colouring the cement today, and I hope he remembers to do this for us.

All the gingers have grown lovely coats since we have fed them, and they look sleek and content.
