Happy New Year

Today, the 6th January, is a very happy day for Spanish children as the gift-bearing Kings’ visit to Jesus is celebrated. Last evening the Kings made a procession, in a train, along the road, with police sirens, lights, whistles and horns. Children also enjoyed the train ride, followed by loads of cars and a dog, who thought it was great fun seeing off the loud noisy monster!

The weather has been exceptionally mild for the start of this new year, with temperatures during the day at over 20°C, honeybees are enjoying this flowering aeonium.





The oranges are now ripe, although smaller than in other years, they are juicy and lovely in fruit salad and other recipes.
