Return to Spring

Wild flowers and olives

It was a bit damp over Easter and the May bank holiday weekend but the weather has returned to normal and we are once again able to enjoy the wonderful colours of spring which are fresher than ever after the recent rain. Here are a couple of photos taken today. The first one shows wild flowers growing on a bank with an olive grove beyond. The olive trees are now in blossom which is translucent in the early morning light. The other is of our house from the meadow below. We have a potential buyer from Barcelona who has visited us three times but he is waiting for the sale of his apartment in Barcelona to go through and would not be able to complete until September so we are still open to offers for a quick sale.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

    • Hello June

      We are pressing hard on the sale but will have to accept a terrific loss on the property but we have no choice but there are a lot of people much worse off than us. Great news about baby George. Congratulations to everybody.
