Lagrimas de Maria … what simple beauty!

The rains have started and the grass is turning green poco a poco.  The lagrimas de Maria (Mary’s tears) have appeared overnight and are thick and colorful.  For being just 6-8 inches tall, they make quite an impact.  (And they don’t take any care or require a green thumb!)  There are taller varieties and darker colors of lagrimas, but these light pink shorties are great!
