Springtime in Concepcion

Remember friends, November is Spring in South America!  Here is what spring looks like in Concepcion!

Hydrangeas are in full bloom almost everywhere!

I always bought hydrangeas at the store in Arizona - at a pretty hefty price!
I had no idea that this is how they begin - a little green cluster,
and then such a magnificent bloom!  They bloom until late December and then the summer heat
starts to take it's toll.
Here is another beauty - don't know what it's called - it's just gorgeous!

Close up:)

Our morning walks sometimes take us by this little playground - we can't wait to bring grandkids here to swing!

The playground (above) is by the temple lot.  One day we noticed that they were starting to demolish some of the buildings on the lot.  We were pretty excited!  The Concepcion Temple was announced in 2009, but so far there hasn't been any building going on.  Maybe now is the time?!

Home from our walk - in front of our "Edificio" (condo building).  I have a soft spot for roses!
Some of us are just a little slower than others:):)
