The River Milanos

Rio Milanos

Wild flowers on the river bank

Despite the recent heavy rains we believe that the River Milanos, which flows along the bottom of our land, is an asset to the property as we think these photos taken this afternoon illustrate. The river crossing to our house has a concrete base and on only on 3 days this year has the flow been too strong to prevent crossing it in an ordinary small saloon car.

The wildlife, from ducks and terrapins at river level to the nightingales and golden aureoles above, is a delight. Our dogs enjoy paddling in the river and the chickens like to scratch around its banks by the poplars.

In our previous blog I mentioned that we have reduced the price of our property. It is now only 169,000 euros.



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.
