It's spring in Mozambique!

Spring rains bring this tuft of grass to life

The rainy season started with a few good rains in late October.  Within days, spring had unfurled across the countryside of Mozambique and produced quantities of new growth.  While our water supply hasn't completely recovered, there is now enough moisture in the soil to support seedlings and flowers.  A recent trip to the mountain yielded fresh grass, full sun, and thousands of beautiful, smiling (botanical) faces.

Spring also means baby animals, like this baby praying mantis
