This week, almost 9 months to the day, I passed through the area again after a long absence and I noticed how different the the terraced slope looked after one year of good rain. Fire department vehicles passing through forced me to pull over so I decided it was a good opportunity to take more photos.
Here's a side-by-side comparison from different angles.
|I didn't manage to capture exactly the same angle but both these shots show the structure photographed from the north end looking south. The 2018 photo is on the left and the 2019 photo is on the right.|

Those cement block walls are still austere but, if this growth rate continues, I think the area should be quite attractive in a few years. It's unlikely we'll get rain on par with last year's in the coming rain year (calculated from October 1st through September 30th) but we can hope and, in any case, this particular fruit tree garden has a drip irrigation system.
