The lemons are beginning to look like lemons now, rather than large limes. The colour progression is a like watching a colour wheel in an art class, the gradual transition, shade by shade, deeper colours where the skin seems thicker. Can’t wait for the first lemon sorbet.
5 to remember
la progresión – the progression
una clase de arte – an art class
la transición gradual – the gradual transition
más adentro – deeper
no puedo esperar a que – I can’t wait for
Wild borage. May 17, 2014
The blossom is late here this year, colder temperatures have delayed the almond and cherry blossom. I know it doesn’t look like much, but this is the first in the valley and so is a cause for celebration. Almond blossom too early = a poor almond harvest as the blooms will be killed by frost. Now is about the right time. So fingers crossed for a good almond crop, last year’s was non-existent. 5 to remember
retresado/a – delayed

…a watermelon in the huerta. Oddly, they need hardly any water. Not like melons which need lots. August 17, 2013.
