Going Green in San Miguel de Allende

Green is not my favorite color but when I see it here, one can not help but love it.
Delicious cream of artichoke soup at La Chamonix in San Miguel at Calle Sollano 17.  Ana makes the best soups.
Lush artichokes in the market in San Miguel.
Green on green at the Botanic Gardens, El Charco del Ingenio, just outside of San Miguel.  There are over 500 different cacti and 250 acres with an abundance of hiking trails. 
The cactus almost looked fake, especially with the fuzzy ribs on each arm.  Believe me, it was real. 
I found this little green door against the white stucco facade to be so refreshing and pristine.
Nopales, the fleshy oval pads or leaves of the prickly pear cactus.
Chayote squash, native to Mexico, was once a principle food to the Aztecs and Mayans.
And of course, it would not be a market without its chilies.  Viva la Verde!
