#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Aloe Vera, Grande Terre, Quadaloupe

Aloe Vera, Grande Terre, Quadaloupe

On this Caribbean

island, I must grow

and flower

like aloe

by sea

I must want –

I must crave –

to be rich as an aloe

in desirable qualities!

Be a succulent body

and juicy of mind

be spirit of aloe

in flesh

Grand-Terre. . . has a dryer landscape, with mostly shrubs and trees. Local pear trees and rubber trees being the predominant. Along the coast line you will find cactuses and agaves. Many of the species in Guadeloupe where in introduced by man, including coco palms and the beautiful flamboyant s, originating from Madagascar, which become an explosion of reds, between the months of May and August. The list of imports include the voyager palm. Bougainvillea plants colour the island. Fromager trees are also widespread, renowned for their medicinal properties and often found standing majestically in the grass lands with their long straight branches.
