Give time to flowers....


We will have nardos (tuberoses) until next month. They smell so wonderful in the living room which is also my work room. If I could, I would put bouquets of tuberoses in all the rooms though the fragrance might be a little bit too strong in the bedroom. I bought these last friday at the florist's in my village. As I was noticing the carnations didn't smell much the florist said : pues si...hoy en dia es que no damos bastante tiempo a las flores para que echen su essencia. Las flores crecen a la fuerza y algunas no huelen. Well yes, nowadays flowers are not allowed enough time to develop their fragrance. They are forced to grow too rapidly and some just don't smell.

I’m glad these tuberoses grew in Santa Fe, outside Granada in the air and under the sun.


Time, sun and love….


Isn’t it funny how life can just be beautiful when you combine these three elements? Giving time to friends, which I'm ashamed to confess is one thing I've neglected these past days.


Of course here the sun shines nearly every day, but when I lived in Ireland where rain was more present than sun, I discovered Irish people could create a brilliant sun inside their pubs and through their poetic mind.


Time, sun and love...


Right now, I would love to plant some tomatoes and watch them grow slowly under the sunny Andalusian sky or may be it's not the time for tomatoes yet...

Wishing you a lovely sunday.....

Thank you so much for your supporting comment Lala. Turns out a few blogs violated the copyrights of a major TV company, they were showing video clips for football games which the TV company holds the rights to show. The stupid part is they shut down the entire blogger network, not just those sub-domains. So actually access has been denied to your blog as well, you are also a victim if you have a Turkish audience. I apologise for this in the name of my country..

ps: Beautiful flowers brighten up any sulky mood :)

Now I know what tuberoses look like! Beautiful. And I agree with you on time, sun and love. (Aren't we both lucky to live in sunny countries?) I just feel I do not have enough time! Sometimes I wish I had 28 hours to a day - that would be great!

Thank you so much for spending time on my blog. It means a lot to me. You have a beautiful life in Spain. I will definitely be back to enjoy more time with you here.

I will be going to Madagascar soon. I cannot wait. It is amazing that I have met you this way just before I go. I will definitely post about it when I am back end Nov. You can then catch a glimpse of what awaits you when you do go to rediscover your roots.

I see that you spent time in Ireland? My husband and I will be moving there early next year. It is great to hear such a positive thing about the people and how they create sunshine.

Love, time, sunshine... Beautiful!
