I looked outside my front door this morning and was delighted by what I saw!
We are not usually in Spain at this time of year and I must say we are loving it!
The clear blue skies!
Swimming at Garrucha in the evenings as it gets a little cooler.
The cherries on the market. Priced at 3 Euros for a whole Kilo!
But lets get back to my morning.
I am always slow in the morning and here in Spain that can mean seriously slow but nobody cares!
So I opened the door and---
The beautiful palm we bought nine years ago.
It has just had a new layer of leaves and they are looking so fresh and green.
Lush new foliage.
And then there is our trusty lemon tree.
It was a mere twig when we bought the house but now---
I always tell people we are self sufficient in lemons-- now this is true but that is because we have one trusty tree which gives us all things lemony all year!
Then we have the jasmine plant.
A true triffid, but its vigour is forgiven because its sweet scent especially in the evening is just intoxicating.
Now water is an issue so we have tried to surround ourselves with indigenous plants.
I have come to love cacti and succulents.
Outside our door they really are our most faithful friends.
And every now and again these plants will give you a surprise for a day.
And today it was my day!
And as I was enjoying my view I noticed somebody else was having a good look!
I wonder what you saw outside your door this morning?
