Vegetables v. Flowers

There is a slightly comical, silent war that goes on next door:   G has contempt for any ground used for flowers, ornamentals and will commandeer all spare space.   M loves to beautify her front area so tries to sneak in her lilies and roses. 

Last year I was offered a bucket of bulbs by G.  He didn't remember what they were but they were mine if I wanted them.    I whacked them in a space by the citrus trees and lo and behold....Fleur de Lys after the big rains last week.






I see that all four lime trees are laden and, come January, we'll be swamped

I hope you make lime marmalade, one of my favourites, lovely tang to it.

And those bulbs are gorgeous.

Lovely. Glad to read of your doings. We are already getting local tangerines, but they are a bit sour. Our tree has good ones, but the fruit flies generally get them before we do.

Dear LadyLuz,

Trust you're well. I'm putting together a relocation guide to the Costa de la Luz. It will look something like this: http://www.spainbuddy.com/moving-to-spain-go-expat-in-moving-to-segovia/. If you could email me over three lines in praise of the Costa de la Luz, I'll then link back to your site. We'd really love to publish this next week, so if you could get back to me asap; that would be appreciated.

Looking forward to hearing from you about this,

Matthew
