Candlelike ballons for sale at the Paroquia in the Jardin

Plants for sale, along with fertilizer and pots, in the park.
Yesterday was Candalaria. The park was banked with displays of potted plants and bedding out plants and shrubs for sale. Everybody was walking home with flats and bags of greenery and flowers to put in their gardens. It is also a religious haoliday, so people visited the church as well.

On Block Island you missed the Ice Palace and the Groundhog Count. We number 930 semi-strong, one less than last year's count.

Et Ensuite, La Translation:

Senora Dowling: Our firm, Felins por las Justice, has recently expanded our client base to include the plant kingdom. We would like to ask you what, precisely, we are seeing in this photograph. Have annual and perennial members of the plant world been murdered and rendered into colorful plastic?
We are considering sending our newest investigator, Angent Senorita Gilda Bean, to San Miguel to look into this possible injustice.
We hope you might be willing to meet with Agent Bean and share with her the local color, so to speak. Sincerely , Nose Bite Kitty, Esquire

Guys, it's fertilizer! Thought I said so in the caption...
And as for you, Nose Bite, you're definitely a claw in my side. I think I'll go kick a dog—or, hold on, how do you feel about cruelty to dogs? Miaoooo.
