Vamos al campo...because it's romantic

My friend Gym called me up yesterday to meet up. She now lives in her little cortijo (a cortijo is a piece of land planted with fruit trees, on which you may build a house). I was so happy this morning at the prospect of giving her a visit but alas our Andalusian sunshine is now gone and the sky is no longer blue but sadly grey so I'd rather stay home at the moment and carry on with some work. Such whimsical weather we're having these days !

you might remember these pics from last year. I love Gym's little country house...so romantic...




Happy May 1st !
and have a great week end!

Please may I come on a virtual visit there with you?
May is the time to be outside watching the world bloom.
Happy weekend.

You, too, have a great weekend. The photos are great and I loved that Spanish word when I was there last, 'cortijo'. We have it in Cuba but don't use it as much as in Spain.

Greetings from London.

How good of you to keep to your work, but I'm sure Gym is missing your company.

Well, maybe she manages to stay content in her pretty little house!

OMG, looks amazing. A weekend there would be hard to resist even in sub-par weather...although I can see how if it were really cold it might be rather uncomfortable.

I really enjoy your blog and envy you your lovely environment and lifestyle!

You made me sigh again, when I saw the pictures. Thank you for sharing a bit of beauty with us, and have a great weekend too.

Warmest regards from Chad,

Lala Ema, I love this cozy house! What type of trees does G grow? A romantic life indeed. May the sun soon shine and you drive out to see your friend. <3

Delphine said...

Hi! I am back again, Lala I have just tagged you, have a look at my post today, hope you don't mind, have fun it is an easy one!

dutchbaby said...

Charming, elegant, inviting! I bet you miss your friend.

M said...

That house is beautiful....!

As for the bullfighting I hate the thing in itself. I do admit there is elegance in the movements they do, it is nearly a choreography...but as you said....please leave the bull out of it.

I am on the next plane...ok, I'd like to be but I have to work. Thanks for the relaxing getaway.
