There was glassware inside the main lobby of the hacienda that I kept coming back to, especially in the afternoon when the sun came through the window.
Mosaic water feature:
Details of the left side:
I cannot find a specific name for this, but there seems to be a tradition in Mexico to make folk art out of old tools and hang it on walls like this. There was also one at the place where we stayed in Oaxaca.
Palm (?) stem? I'm a sucker for these kinds of stems where you can see leaves and branches forming as well as the stem.
Another view from the mirror in the little enclosed area. This is the garden facing the mirror.
The mosaic table near the kitchen, by moonlight.
Ginger? I've seen this same kind of plant in Hawaii.
Another mystery plant.
Another view of the purple vine that grew both here and in Oaxaca. Identified as possibly an allamanda, related to "black eyed susan vine", which grows in the US, orange to orange with black center flowers, much smaller.
There were a lot of glass hearts hanging around, each more fun to photograph than the next. They twirled slowly, so you had to wait for just the right sideways view to come up when taking a photo.
Hanging fish. It looks like glass was blown inside of a pre-existing metal structure.
The wild entry way to Hacienda Mosaico.
Some sort of passion vine.
Reflection of palm trees and clouds on the surface of the deep blue swimming pool.
Seriously large philodendron:
This is the side of a little painted metal bird feeder. Again I saw these elsewhere in Mexico. I love the mustard yellow and the crackly texture.
Bromeliad as groundcover.
Not supposed to have snacks.....but if you just were to slip a little something down to me it will be our little secret.....
Princess riding in a pocket!
Rooster with hat....
Another houseplant used as a ground cover. Argh!
The same kind of red passion vine with a bright yellow wall as a background.
The interesting thing with the mosaic pieces that included glass bits: when I tried to focus in on them too close the camera would focus on the reflection rather that what was immediately in front of it.
Tropical something or other....
Maybe a banana flower?
"Bugambilia" aka bougainvillea. See subsequent post for story of this....
'das it, though I have more specialized photos, and photos from town, that I will post soon
