The cute little woman who sells fruit and flowers in Granada



She looks like an old little fairy and people in Granada love her.
She sells fruit and flowers near the cathedral.
How many times did I stop at her stand. I couldn't say.
I love how she does her hair but most of all, it's her energy and happiness which I find quite beautiful to watch....

On dirait une vieille petite fée et les gens l'adorent à Grenade.
Elle vend des fruits et des fleurs, à coté de la cathédrale.
Combien de fois me suis-je arrêtée à son stand. Je sais plus.
J'adore son éternel chignon, mais c'est surtout son énergie et sa joie de vivre qui font plaisir à voir....

She is a beautiful woman with a twinkle in her eye. If she is this beautiful at her age, can you image what she looked like when she was younger? Simply beautiful!

Isn't she just so lovely? I love her hair and yes she looks like a good fairy - she must be hiding her wings away:) xo

She is charming. I love how she does her hair too...and that she keeps it long so she can pile it on top of her head.

That's just the kind of spirit the woman at the ALF has, the one I wrote about in my latest post. Inspirational! I love her hair, too! :)

Oh, she is adorable. I hope her hard work means she has a warm, happy home and lots of good food to return to at the end of the day. I worry about the elderly, but she must be doing all right if she is so loved, energetic, and happy.

I challenge you to try the hairstyle, Lala! I'll bet it would look chic.

How could you not love her! What a beautiful face and sweet energy that comes through!

Hi Lala, In a movie scene, I watched Katharine Hepburn, style her long hair on top of her head. It was quick and effortless and fell into place just perfectly. She had a trick of dividing her long hair into separate parts. I love watching older women fix their long hair. It almost always falls into place all by itself.
Love your little flower lady.
