Summer is Winter

Filed in Costa Rica Seasons by on April 13, 2016 0 Comments • views: 1101

The locals are right, the green season demonstrates the best in Costa Rica nature but without the dry season (summer) which occurs in the winter months, typically January, February and March, there would be no time for all the plants and their roots to dry out and reach for the sky. Don’t get me wrong, summer is necessary around here and it has its own beauty but by March, we are ready for the rains.  Summer is ending and slowly the rains have started up. The green season begins as we say farewell to the summer season.

There are only a few days out of the year when there is not a cloud in the sky. Photo taken during the middle of summer/dry season at Finca Lilo gardens.

The night sky in the dry season is wonderful, however. The farm is situated to where we see both hemispheres of star constellations on clear nights. We can see the north star and the southern cross from the farm on clear nights. We are reminded daily of the force of nature and the beauty the planet offers. We are grateful for the life the earth provides us. May you feel the force of nature in all her splendor and may the force be with you, dear readers! Pura vida!
