On a recent vacation to Playa de carmen, Mexico, we spent a day at the natural aquarium Xel-ha’. Xel-ha’ was named by the ancient Maya and translates to “where the water is born” This stunning tropical world offered a day of snorkeling, beaches, great food, drinks and warm sunshine.
I wandered around the nursery that is home to an amazing variety of native plants; more then 270 species. The plants are raised to maintain the conservation of the reserve, as well as ensure the safety of many endangered species of plants.
I could have put on garden gloves and some garden shoes and stayed all day!

Lucky you! — to have a warm, sunny getaway! Meanwhile, I can relate to wanting to have a garden-related job. I feel the same way when I visit the St. Louis Zoo, for one. Their landscaping is really quite wonderful.
8 fresh inches of snow this am on the ground! I have to say, 80 degree weather agrees with me quite well! The plant nursery was amazingly neat and organized. It is a completely different world from the flat lands of Southern MN.
I can only imagine how much you enjoyed these gardens.
I saw in the paper that the City of Northfield is looking for a part-time gardener. It would be a bit of a drive for you…
The tropical landscape along with 80 degree weather, agrees with me nicely! That would be a lovely job working in the lovely historic Northfield! I’m fortunate to be able to work from home for a gardening web site. I’m not ruling out moving to warmer parts of this world and enjoy a warmer gardening zone–some day! Hope you and your family are all well!
Could you direct me to that gardening website? I think it’s great that you can work from home in addition to your job as mom and chief home-based gardener.
Yes! http://www.gardeningknowhow.com I love working for them! The best part is they are real people and real gardeners!
My co-workers live all over the country.
