So, I forgot to take a rice field photo for March, but really March looked a lot like February. You didn’t miss much.
Now it’s pretty exciting because the rains have started. It’s not raining everyday and never all day, but just enough to get a some water into this field. People are starting to plant corn in their upland fields.
This photo was taken on February 16th.

So, the field looks about the same as it did last month except that there’s a burned patch in the back right. That burning was intentional, don’t worry. The cows are still grazing in the harvested rice fields. I’m surprised there’s anything left to eat!

I love that poinsettias are in bloom at Christmas here. No one intended for them to be Christmas decorations, but they are.
