More finca flowers, friends and food. They watered down the soil
they had dumped into the cut last month, then an interpid botanist
absailed down the face planting trees and bushes as he went.
a cold spell, the weather picked up and Bep, Clara & Gaia came
down to the almacen so Bep could should us how to cook a paella
properly. His paella was delicious, but I am still not sure I can
cook one just right. More practice needed.
flowers are in full bloom now. Even the lilies outside Richard &
Mary's. The olive groves look at their wildest at the moment. There
is still a lot of pruning to be done, as well as clearing the land
underneath the trees. Still there were signs that we were doing
the right things.
And the floats come out to amuse. It's the start of the village
festes (fiesta). This year, the weather was a bit overcast for the
parade of floats, but at least it had stopped raining.
previous festes, we took things easy and did the minimum of partying,
but still had a great time. Didn't go to the bullring at all this
year. It was windy, and friends beckoned from indoors.
Theo getting a well earned rub, while Cleo looks on, unwilling to
participate. She still will not let anyone human touch her.
Not sure who's wedding this is, but it is definitely a cracker.
