Grapes well – all is well.
At the moment when you enter our kitchen you are immediately transferred to foreign countries, adventure, pirates, old sailing boats and the like, for the simple reason that a large paket with really fresh spices arrived from a specialist in the UK.
If you want some spice in your live I do recommend to check out
At the last feria in Sober, we where somewhat surprised and amused when a bloke asked about the “Pendientes de la Reina” or Fushias and than asked if he could transport them on a motorcycle. Immediately we had the mental picture of a Fushia clinging to a driver on a Yamaha doing 150Km/h.
So I went and ispected what turned out to be a motor scooter. Still I discouraged him by saying that I did not think the plant would survive a ride.
But than I can only title this as – LOVE IS……
He turned up with a carton and carefully pakaged the plant into it.
I imagine that resting comfortably in the footwell, it arrived without too much damage and hopefully is now enjoyed by the new owner(ess).
Shows you – Love can be a flowery motor scooter.
If she isn’t sniffing (spices) – Barbara is more or less permanently tied to a water hose.
The results are spectacular and don’t forget some of the pictures can be clicked to show large versions for you to enjoy (works on a tablet as well – don’t know about IPad)
Alternatively you can still visit the garden, just call ahead, so there is someone to show you around.
Live is great here in Galicia, nevertheless there are some sour grapes or areas of improvement.
A big one is dealing with “Funktionarios” and government offices here in Galicia.
We complained and insisted that future communications are to be in Castillan, as we do not understand Gallego and we live in Spain where the offical languge is Castillan. The Xunta might think different but by law they have to provide everything in Castillan as well.
So I’m p…ed off as we received another totally useless answer from Turismo in Lugo – in Gallego. …. Informe favorablemente a posibilidade de ….. so its positively possible BUT maybe not…. This is in times of crisis and – positively possible – is not very encouraging when one is on the brink of spending a larger chunk of money……..
So we are going to complain to the Xunta (Sekretary general turismo ond other useful things) and see what happens next – maybe we need to ask for asylum somewhere soon.
We’ll keep you posted.
