We have just enjoyed the most wonderful week of weather and the spring blossoms have been just beautiful – the fruit trees are flowering in pink and white, the rosemary a wonderful blue, the futinias are a vibrant, firery red and the more ‘wild’ parts of the garden are a carpet of bright yellow, vivid blue and violet where the weeds are flowering! The herbs are flourishing, the olive trees just about flowering and buds are beginning to appear on the roses and holm oaks.
The scent of the wild fennel and mint are so aromatic as you walk by. We’re hoping for a bumper crop from the cherry and apricot trees later in the Spring to be able to make lots of our delicious homemade jam for breakfast in the mornings.
