One of my favorite people in all of Salobreña is currently bedridden with a nasty bit of back trouble. With this in mind, I offered to pillage cuttings, I mean water her plants for her until she is up and about again.  So beautiful and varied are the plants on her roof terrace, that I just had to share.  Enjoy!

Everywhere you look at the moment something is in bloom.  The almond trees have started, mimosa is in full swing, and so many others I don’t know the name of are giving us their best show. Enjoy.

Happy New Year everyone, and what a lovely new year it has been so far.  The weather is great, and did you realize that we did not get a single drop of rain in December?  This has to be a first in a long while.  Weather conditions like that are perfect for the succulents in the area, all of which seem to blooming at the moment.  From mighty orange spikes lighting up hillsides to tiny delicate pale yellow and blush toned blossoms in my window box, nature is giving us her best.  If you love to garden, then this is the place to be.  I have been scooting around on the scat mobile taking photos of any and everything in bloom at the moment.  How lucky am I?  A little something for the gardeners out there, enjoy.

If you look closely at this blossom spike, you can see droplets of the sweetest nectar imaginable. The bees are on to something!

Echeveria- go on click me.

We all know how beautiful the weather here in Salobrena is year round, even when it’s cold it isn’t really  cold or grey.  I bought this plant in February at the car boot sale and stuck it in my window where it has done brilliantly.  Here is the
February photo and yesterdays photo for comparison.  Salobreña has a micro climate all it’s own. If it says rain in Almuñecar, or Nerja or Malaga, the weather here will probably be sunny and warm.  Almuñecar had a terrific storm in September 2007, whole streets were submerged, and cars washed away, we had blue skies.  Go figure.
