Flora&Fauna Life in Spain


bouganvillea(eco)In October the climbing Bougainvillea was looking straggly and jaded; my brother in law was due to visit, for 10 days, later in the month, …so to encourage the flowers we all love to see, I pruned it. Sadly later the weather got colder and the plant failed to bloom. Whilst my brother in law visited we made the trip up to the Saliente Monastery, the cloud level was encroaching on the holy towers and it was decidedly bleak! In December and January the weather, especially during the day is warm and sunny, the bougainvillea is flowering gloriously…

Isn’t that always the way?
