Elm trees have all but disappeared in Northern Europe but in the little town of Nijar, Almeria, there are some lovely old elms. They have been pollarded regularly and this seems to have enabled them to resist Dutch elm disease. In the square by the Church and Town Hall there are two fine examples.
A little further on, in another square, Plaza de Mercado, there are more elms. I think the photo of this one by the fuente tells a story.
Walking along the narrow streets of the old town, you will come across plenty of cats.
They seem well looked after and we noticed that food was put out for them outside some of the front doors.
Little girls liked to play with the kittens.
Some of the cats were co-operative in posing so I managed to get some appealing photos.
I think they are evocative of the town.
