Moringa in Spring


It’s hard to differentiate between the seasons here in the tropics, of course. But now there is a little freshness in the air. After a few showers that eased our crippling drought, the garden seems to be breathing again. The clouds are high and light; the sky is a gentler blue. And mangoes are ripening…

Our moringa trees are tall and spindly but oh, so delicate. And full of powerful goodness. I just took these photos.

Drink a cup of moringa tea, today!

    1. You’re welcome! We grew these trees from four seeds in our yard. They all grew into trees. I am pretty sure it could be grown from cuttings, and as you are in the tropics too it shouldn’t be hard to grow.
