Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

Flower Power

Had a relaxing afternoon coffee with The Villager in Gauro today.  We started on a standard café con leche and then progressed to a "BomBon", which is strong coffee with condensed milk – strong and sweet!  All around us in the bar's sunny patio were youngsters smoking weed, chilling with a few drinks and others playing table football.Img_2146
Earlier I'd been up to the house to check on things and the countryside was still covered in wild flowers. They wont be here for long as it's getting warmer each day and soon the ground will return to its familiar burnt colour. Img_2125The area around the house has just been left for over two years without fertiliser for the olive or almond trees, so the place is full of flowers and sweet peas.

Be the first to like.

    Hi Andrew,
    Enjoyed my first encounter with your blog. We’ve got something similar, only for northern Spain where the wildflowers are just starting to bloom and bull’s testicles are blessedly less common.
