Puerto Vallarta with all the bougainvillea is looking great thanks to generous donations to pay for the Vallarta Garden Club gardener and to provide us with a truck and necessary equipment to water the plants, a vital task during the dry season. We’ve also had a loyal cadre of weeders helping every week making sure planters and trees look good. A big “thank you” to all!
The Second Annual Bugambilia Festival is just around the corner! And we hope you’ll be able to participate on May 9 - 11, 2014.
