Day 9: Anna

Hi everyone. I want to tell you about all the nature that is in our yard.

We have two avocado trees. Unfortunately it is not avocado season any more. But when it was, we froze some avocados so we could make avocado smoothies and stuff. You see a lot of avocado tree out of our yard too. We also have an orange tree. There about 200 oranges or so on the tree now, but they are all green, so they’re not ripe yet. We have a couple palm trees as well, but I haven’t seen any palm trees that haven’t been planted there on purpose. I only see them in gardens. Other than that, we have a couple different kinds of flowers, including roses. We have red, pink, and white roses. Mom is growing mint, and Sara is growing cucumbers. We also have a lot if different kinds of bushes. Some of them have thorns. Some have leaves that are shaped like an octagon. Every one is unique. We have a beautiful tree in the frond yard, it’s like a ginormous canopy, a classic African tree. And underneath it we have several more palm trees. We also have a papaya tree. We only figured out it was a papaya tree because we found a big fruity thing laying in the grass, and we looked it up to see if it was eatable. We also have a mango tree. There are two types of mango trees that I am aware of, one of them is a red mango and I forgot the name of the other. Red mangos are usually bigger and juicer. Unfortunately we don’t have a red mango tree. We have one kind of vine that has little pink flowers. And I can’t forget the passion fruit tree, but we have not managed to pick any passion fruit yet.

By the way, to those who were wondering, Sara and I forgot to tell the gardener about the backyard compass, and it got kind of rearranged.
