It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

You know how I talk about the big Avenue near our home ?
This is it. Libertador.
Where the parks are all lined up on both sides of the street, where certain Pups spent many hours each day, sniffing, exploring, lolling.
We chose our home because it was (1) what we were looking for in style (2) felt right (3) close to the parks for the Pup.
He and we certainly got our moneys worth ! At any time of day or year, the parks are there in all their glory.
Summer is amazing, I can't quit taking photos of how green they are.
Spring is fantastic, with the streets lined with purple Jacarandas.
Autumn is the way it should be, blissfully cooler after the last of the hot summer months and leaves drying and falling and looking much like Autumn in the Northern Hemsiphere.
Winter, there are still Evergreens and Palm trees and noisy parrots and bundled up in a coat and scarf, we still enjoy the parks.


  1. Hello Candice:
    Yes, the parks which you show here and have often featured in your posts are so wonderful to have as an all year round resource. And, they seem to be planted in such interesting ways with something in flower or of interest in every season. Lucky you to be so close.

  2. Jane & Lance , thank you .. yes, we are so lucky.
    Many of the gardens here were designed by Carlos Thays .. a French/Argentine .. and there are so many "exotic" wonderful plants here that you don't see in other parts of the world.

    Julia, email me at
    I will do my best to help you but you have very little time .

  3. Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
