At last the weather has improved this weekend. It has been a real treat to feel the warmth of the sun again and there is a feeling of Spring in the air.
The hen from next door has been proudly marching her 11 new chicks around the olives groves. Some of these will take up residence on our farm when they are a little bigger.
Bandida, heavy with foal, has visited us again to enjoy the grazing near our house.
Tomorrow is a public holiday, the Day of Andalucia, but our builders will be back after taking the weekend off. Here is a photo of one of our cats, Tilly, guarding their hoist.
We have been busy planting vegetables in the field by the river and clearing the bank in front of the house for flowerbeds. Lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage and onions have now gone in. What looked like a small tray of onions turned out to contain about 700 seedlings which took an age to plant. In between gardening we have enjoyed our walks along the river which is now much quieter than the raging torrent of last week.
