January in Spain
Rain, the grandma of storms and winds and daytime temperatures around 20C. This is the result in the garden - everything burdgeoning and blooming: geraniums, hibiscus, abutilon, hardenbergia and the beautiful succulents.
We're waiting for a cold snap to be able to prune the fruit trees and realise that the abundant new growth could be at risk. There are weeds galore too.
We've both had flu-like symptoms since New Year and have lost our mojo to get out there and get stuck in. I think we'll have to buy in some help to get on top of it.
