Charco del Ingenio

Land Art

At Charco del Ingenio, Mexico’s largest botanical park right here in San Miguel, there was a terrible fire last spring.  Fortunately, there has been a great recovery by many of the plants, and our year round San Miguel friends tell us that the wildflowers after the wild fire were the most spectacular in many years.

Currently there is an an exhibit of “land art” in the park.  Andy Goldsworthy type art made of natural materials.  These photos are of a burned mesquite sculpture, acknowledging and remembering that fire.
