We have just returned from a three week cruise of the Caribbean, Atlantic, Cape Verde and Tenerife, which we really enjoyed. Apparently it rained for the first week we were away, and since then has been variable but generally warmer, about time!
Our neighbours are out today planting their potatoes, and everything is looking very green, the vines are shooting nicely, and a lot of the fruit has set. Opposite the terraces are covered in weeds, which are quite pretty, but will need clearing if the plantings are to do well. The other day we suffered a really heavy rain and hail storm which left a lot of debris around the swimming pool. Everything as usual at this time of year, is covered in yellow pollen from the pine trees, so today I will clean the cars and maybe later in the week I will start work on opening the swimming pool ready for the summer.
