The sun is still very low even at mid-day, but the low light looked beautiful through the climbing rose and passion flower leaves on our garden shelter, and through the olive trees, this morning.
We collected a trailer load of horse manure from the paddock where our friend whose grapes we picked keeps her horses. It will be great for the garden, as it’s well rotted, and we spread it on some of the beds that we’ve cleared. In a week or so we’ll go and fetch some more.
Modern communications in a wild landscape
We sometimes complain about what modern innovations are doing to the environment and we’re certainly not happy about the housing development next to our garden. The electricity pylons are unmissable, eyesores perhaps, but necessary, and next to the one on the left are two mobile phone masts which mean that finally there is reception for our mobiles in the village – everyone welcomes that!
