  1. There is also the house of the Morena museum which has some interesting paintings.The monument to Pope Pius IX is rather odd. I missed the malcon. There are some dandy lakeside restaurants near Ocotlan and you cross over what used to b the outlet of the lake near Cuitzeo which is fairly close to the lakes main inlet -the Lerma river. there are also a few old haciendas in the area.

Take a water taxi to stone island. I swan with a turtle there. It is a port city so not very touristy.
  3. In the old days the Indios did something similar. They poured several compounds down a hole and then sealed it. The gas produed got rid of the colony.
  4. Wait times are usually very short. Much shorter than NOB.
  5. Many of those won't do well in this climate. I 've tried literally dozens of plants-from cashews to olives. The cashews did well at the coast.
  6. Another interesting tree is the Tabachin-pinnate leaves with yellow or red flowers. They used to have some outside the ajijic hospial. Not too large a tree but colourful
  7. Another favourite tree is the Arco iris (Idon't know the latin name).It is a medium sized tree with interesting leaves. They flowers change colour during the day. Red to yellow or vice versa.
  8. One of my favorites is the Pata de vaca (because of the shape of the leaf) https://www.google.ca/search?q=pata+de+vaca+tree&newwindow=1&sxsrf=ALiCzsavuHOZ7mVdirz435KkpyONkWLCcA%3A1658798534343&source=hp&ei=xkHfYqi-EJ_ZkPIPxJmsWA&iflsig=AJiK0e8AAAAAYt9P1ktRCNue6BCxWvcNxtmsa4OfJNar&oq=pata+de+vac&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYADIECCMQJzIFCC4QgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDoECC4QQzoLCC4QgAQQxwEQ0QM6CAguEIAEENQCOgsILhCABBDHARCvAToKCAAQgAQQhwIQFFAAWKIkYII_aABwAHgAgAG3AYgBwQqSAQMzLjiYAQCgAQE&sclient=gws-wiz The leavas are a beautiful green that I painted most of my ironwork to match. It is also called the orchid tree because of the shape of the flowers. Mine flowred for up to 8 months of the year. Very little trouble with pests escept for leaf cutting ants which are easy to control as there is a only a single trunk usually. If you look through the Lake Chapala garden guide or flowering plants of the landcape or tropical blossoms of the Pacific or Tropical trees or Major flowerings trees of tropical gardens,or Arboles de Mexico, orTropical trees and shrubs or Jardinera you will see many excellent choices. You may have better luck looking through plant books rather than asking here
  9. I had 18 of those on my property( Mine were a fair bit larger) and would not recommend them. Snakes like to live in them where they eat the young of nesting birds.The dead needles make a pile around the base of each tree where almost nothning else will grow. Boring-no flowers but they do move around in the wind a lot. I have a list of more suitable trees that I will post when my company leaves. A rether pedistrian tree more suitable to northern altitudes.
  10. I just heard that she will be away for another week.
  11. She may be in Spain. Did you talke to one of the assistants? Best to use WhatsApp.
  12. I don't see any flowers. I usually have 2 female dogs.-they pefer to pee on grass-good fertilizer. I had an acre of grass in Richmond BC where there is an excess of water usually. I had large patches of grass in the Raquet Club but my aljibe held over45,000 liters and all watering was done by gravity. No shortage of water and free. It depends on what you like. I like flowers and butterflies. It looks like you don't. Cutting grass and raking is good exercise Even if the grass dries out and goes brown it can still be nice to look at and it gets green again in the rainy season.
  13. Thank goodness that in many areas we can still make proper gardens with grass and florwers-nothing beats them. My dogs love the grass.
  14. Faena Few flowers in your "garden" A neighbour uses cardboard rather than fabric and it seeems to be quite effective.

You have the address and phone number right but the name slightly wrong. She usually uses WhatsApp.
  16. To stop from going to DAC rates I had a second meter installed which served the casita and pool and I never pumped water from my aljibe to the tinaco. Garden watering was by gravity from the large aljibe.The tinaco was filled by pressure from the fraccionamiento. My bimomthly bill for the two meters was 800 to 900 pesos for a 3 bedroom house, casita and pool and large garden.
  17. Thee are many places for basic tests. For more comprehensicve test you have ro go to Guadalajara
