Hermano Pedro's Tree
Well, purportedly he planted this tree around 1570. It has white flowers year round and if you gather those that fall from the tree and brew a tea from it, it will cure headaches and many other things. As the English-translated sign says, "the active ingredient is faith."
As we watched people gathering flowers, this little boy started gathering and giving us what he got. Guess he figured we needed a little help getting started. Soon he and Jack were gathering together. So now we have a handful of dried flowers to brew into a tea that cures what ails 'ya. Thanks, Hermano Pedro.
