March in the valley

March, and the verges are full of yellow wildflowers. Mostly gorse, but all of it welcome. Some days the sky is grey, but more often than not it is a beautiful Royal Blue, reminding us that we are one step away from Spring. olive trees pruned4 15-3-13 (3)Now is the time for activity outdoors. The weeds are already growing. Dry sunny days are ideal for outside jobs such as repairing terrace tiles, painting exterior walls, and planning the contents of our terrace plant pots. Every day that we go for a walk, the valley changes. The ivy is greener. The olive trees, pruned after the harvest, are sprouting new growth.

This is what we see around us. jose antonio's valley2 15-3-13 (2)jose antonio's valley3 15-3-13 (2)thyme track2 15-3-13 (2)thyme track3 15-3-13 (2)hillside to right of track by P's casita1 26-3-13 (2)tree covered in ivy 26-3-13 (2)hillside to right of track by P's casita2 26-3-13 (2)5 to remember

        Life is treating me well, Sandra – thanks for asking. Lots of new tasks at the office, my time for commenting on blog posts was pretty limited so far. I’ve still got a lot of catching up to do.
