The sugar cane began to flower a few weeks ago and thus the harvesting has started. The harvest will take till end of November/Beginning of December. Now I have been thinking a lot about where I was going to take a picture – and I have tried and failed many times. All the spots I thought about didn’t work out because I never knew that when the sugar came flower it would add 30cm in height to the actual plant. Well yes, I admit, I never studied sugar canes before.
I am waiting for one particular spot that I think will work perfect, but in case the field hasn’t completely flowered before we leave on holidays in beginning of July, well I had to find somewhere else. The trick is, I have to be higher that the field, because these plants are 3m high when they flower.
The effect is not what I am looking for, but the site is pretty and you can see a whole field. Thank you for those who moved this chimney stack to this place! By the way, these towers can be seen a little bit everywhere on the island, and are usually located where there was a sugar estate years back. In the 19th century there were over 300 of them on the island.
