Creating a garden since 2003 out of an old orchard, a barley field and a building site on the windy coast of southern Andalucia, Spain.
Welcome. I hope you enjoy my rambles and pictures and, hopefully, a bit of warmth if you're in cooler climes.

Quadruple the number of crops this year and we managed to harvest some before the birds got to them. But as you can see, plenty left for all of us.
And as for the Moscatel grapes.....marvellous. Last year and the year before everyone's grapes went mildewy. Not this year - delicious.
When I left for the UK a month ago to be with a sick friend, these were all miniscule. What a change in a month.
I forgot to photograph the pomegranates. Again, so many this year that I must find some recipes. Up until this year we could count on one hand the number of fruits. I have no idea why this year is so different.
