Day 18 - Snow on the Mountain
Obviously it does not snow in the Caribbean, but in winter we do get "snow in the mountains". Snow on the Mountain is a plant/bush that grows here in Dominica (and I am sure other places). In the "winter" the bushes green leaves turn white. Where there are many plants together, it looks like there is snow on mountain. It is absolutely beautiful. Sometime it is placed next to pointsetta plants and the contrasting white and red is gorgeous. There was one spectacular place here but the pointsetta plants (here they grow HUGE) were cut back. I am on a quest to find it together in other places and share the view!
