This is a small section right after the concrete was misted. In about a month I will be able to clean it with muriatic acid and then seal it. I will also touch up the pointed pavers with a little bit of concrete stain so they stand out.
In case you wondered why I am inspired by pebble mosaics, this is why. Even this trip hazard of a sidewalk looks pretty darn good with a pebble mosaic. They are everywhere in Mexico and adding something similar to my garden will remind us of the rustic paradise we love to visit.
This is Elephante who we met when he was a puppy with pink spots on his feet.
He was still there and all grown up.
Most of the dogs in Mexico look like a scruffy version of this.
This is our dog Dinga sitting in the kitchen looking nervous because she doesn't have anything to herd.
But this year we found something totally different on the streets of Mexico.......
Little Designer Dogs! This little guy on the left looks like he should be sitting on a pink silk pillow in some ritzy mansion. Instead he was on the streets of Mexico begging for food with the rest of them. Is this a Shitzu? And the little one on the right looks like he just jumped out of Paris Hilton's purse! (I left the Shitzu in for scale.) We knew the little designer dog population was a problem in the states, but we had no idea it had also rolled down to the streets of Mexico, this was a surprise.We think someone must have been caring for this group of dogs as they looked in pretty good shape for the circumstances.
We do go to Mexico to see more than just dogs and Rocks. Here are a few other points of interest.
And I thought I sometimes planted a little close, look at this. I think this is a marriage of "till death do us part".
These were big trees that seemed to be thriving.
Here is an old Coati that we saw at our favorite restaurant. He had scars like he had been in a few fights. Poor guy. We later saw a pack of 60 or more living on the side of a cliff in rock caves.
A beautiful day in Mexico.
I love this door!
A garden update will be coming very soon when the patio is finished.
