Sunny terrace in Granada

Some of my favorite words in Spanish are terraza al sol, a terrace under the sun. This is the best gift Granada has to offer on a lazy saturday morning. We were lucky enough to have one sunny day before the rain poured again on sunday. This is plaza Carlos Cano which comes alive when the sun is out. Wouldn't it be wonderful to organize a brunch party there ?
The building on the side needs a bit refreshing . It seems obviously not in use, I wonder what will be done with it. I find its façade so romantic with the little orange trees and the wrought iron balconies.

Orange trees on the street are my idea of heaven. (One of the many.)

What a gorgeous old plaza with those shabby walls and the orange trees. I dislike gloomy weather as well, but there's nothing like several days in a row of it to make the sun seem brand new. Wishing you more "brand new days" soon.
