Strictly speaking, I know that it is still spring in the northern hemisphere but we have certainly been enjoying what feels like summer here this week.
Wandering around the garden, there is colour and scent at every turn.
The whole patch is teeming with wildlife, it feels like we are completely immersed in nature. How magical to watch a deer and her fawn grazing in the meadow above the house as we ate our dinner outside; how incredible for Roger to pause on his morning run and watch an Iberian wolf lope across the field in front of him!
The rate at which plants are growing is phenomenal.
It’s so good to indulge in sweet summer flavours on our plate.
There is the promise of plenty more tasty delights to come.
We have made a start on Phase 2 of the house renovation . . .
. . . but there has still been time to squeeze in some decent walks.
We have lived here for just over a year now and we love our new home as much as ever. It is such a gorgeous spot, so peaceful and beautiful. Perfect for living the outdoor life we enjoy so much . . . and summer has barely begun! 🙂
