Winter does not last long in Granada. The days are lengthening and we are seeing the first signs of Spring. We are now able to sit outside and enjoy lunch and afternoon tea in the warm winter sun. Our poplars, which shed their leaves at the beginning of December, are already in bud. The rosemary bushes are flowering and the gorse makes a blaze of colour. The almond trees are covered with fat buds which, very soon, will burst into lovely flowers of pink and white. The early orchids, too, will soon be opening their gorgeous flowers in lovely shades of pink, yellow and crimson. Along the river banks, the terrapins emerge from their winter sleep to bask in the warm sunshine.
If you click on the photos they will enlarge.
