Natural World, July 2016

Versión española

July…

The haze covers the skies and landscapes, hiding the horizons… Not my favorite, although nice, more mysterious and magical at times. The things you can’t see, your mind can draw for you, leaving the space for more imagination, a good exercise for brain :D.

To watch the clouds from above is awesome!!! Pushed down to very low level, by the intense force of the heat. This strong heat would make the condensation to rise from the ocean, at the feet of our mountain. The rise of condensation, covers the mountains in mist, finally completely obstructing the view.

Above is the pictures of Dragon tree (Dracaena draco) of San Juan del Reparo, the small village in the north of Tenerife. It is the natural symbol of the island and the most famous one is the giant Drago Milenario in Icod de los Vinos, although not as old as previously thought, is nevertheless loved and visited by many tourist that come to the island.

In the land everything is flourishing, despite the lack of rain, although still receiving a good amount of humidity from the mist and dew. The corn plants have reached their heights and now are flowering and starting to give fruits. Sunflowers, as well, are at their best, standing strong in all the glory!

Cucumbers are now plentiful and healthy, that we eat raw or make pickled conserves with dill, sometimes add garlic or chilly and mustard seeds.

This month we saw rapid growth, due to the increased heat with frequent spikes of humidity. A productive month at the finca and was exciting to watch the weird phenomenons of the strong heat at the highs of the mountains and the contrasting low clouds and mist at the lows of the island in the north of our beloved island Tenerife.
