Already it's mid February and the sun's been shining and warm for a few weeks now. I went walking today in the hills behind the town. It's dry and sparse, but there are small irises, as well as the usual scrubby bushes of sage and thyme everywhere. The olive trees are almost all harvested, the fruit trees are starting to bloom and the fields are ploughed. It's really very lovely. Hope you enjoy these photos.
This image is absolutely classic; sun setting on the casa blanca, and el viejo planting his vegetables in the garden.
I was amazed to come across this beautiful white horse being trained, with the church of Santa Carmen visible in the background.
