My goodness it was a long time coming, after what has seemed an age of rain, wind and storms and cooler than average temperatures, we woke up at the weekend to blue skies and sunshine.
We enjoyed breakfast alfresco, and drinks and canapés with friends before a long leisurely sunday lunch.
We even got up to Sierra Nevada, to ski before they ended their season. The constant rain fall gave us plenty of fresh white snow, and the clear skies created the perfect skiing day. Tired bodies and rosie cheeks were sign of good day had by all, a short 2 hour journey from La Rosilla, we were home for supper and sipping a relaxing glass of red.
Normal service resumed ! Por Fin ! 🙂
Now the annual pre-summer preparations must start in earnest at La Rosilla, weeding, olive grove maintenance, pruning and burning and then the white paint-a-thon for outside. Windows are flung open wide to let the air flow through our casa to dry everything out and let the fresh air in.
The mountains are full of wild flowers, orchids, sweet peas, garlics and borage, bees are happy gatehring their pollen and birds busy making nests and singing their hearts out.
I’ve put my hiking boots back on, and trying once more to up my game, get fit and strong to do another leg of The Camino de Santiago in June, this year I’m going to do the Finisterre and Muxia route, along the coastal paths to the the end of the world ;). It’s definitely breathtaking in more ways then one, climbing and hiking the Montes de Malaga, but I’m so grateful I live in this stunning part of the world, and these routes are on more doorstep, ever changing through the seasons and at this time of year in their prime.
Primavera (Spring) lovely to see you x
