As most of you know, “flora” is the Spanish word for flower. Although it’s winter in Oregon, it’s summer in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is in the northern hemisphere, but it only has two seasons. The dry season is summer and runs from December into April. The temperature is usually in the 70’s during the day and in the high 50’s at night; we’ve only had one day of rain in the eight weeks that we’ve been here. The wet season is winter and runs from approximately May through November. We are told that it will rain a lot during the winter (every day). So, as you might have guessed, we’re enjoying the Costa Rica summer. Here are some pictures of the flowers on our way to school each day:

Thanks for posting this. I loved discovering the flowers of Costa Rica. So colorful & exotic. And such a contrast to winter in northern Ohio!
