Typical rain in the Philippines.
Some of you might have noticed my recent lack of "blogtivity". The reason is simple - with my family, I traveled to the Philippines. Originally I planned to take a laptop with me however in a desire to travel lightly; my husband thought that an iPhone was sufficient. I found out later on that writing on a touch screen is ineffective for gardener's fingers like mine. Then I though that I could also post pictures knowing that they can speak louder than words...but sometimes life is not all that simple. Two of the three small cameras we brought stopped working when we got to Cagayan, the northern-most province of the Philippines. It was raining so hard that moisture must have penetrated the casing of the cameras. The only one that remained functional was the one that was stored it in a ziploc bag.
