Here is another view of the living room. Not a very good shot but you can get a feel for what it is like. Needs cleaning for one thing. And it is out of focus. Oh, well. Ed is in his chair on the left and our friend and neighbor David Poisal is on the sofa. The paintings are from and of Tlacotalpan, Veracruz.

Another Stanhopea orchid has bloomed. The bloom stalk grows down rather than up. Since in the wild they are in trees, that makes as much sense as growing up.
And now for the fresco. It is now possible to get a feel for what the left side of the fresco will look like. There are still more plants to be painted along the bottom in the foreground. There is a paper butterfly stuck on for the moment.
Here is the same part of the wall taken from the balcony.
