More flowers. For the fans of flowers. I really hope you can zoom in on the images like I can. So that you can see all the weird little bits inside the flowers. Madness.
Sorry if you guys are finding my flower posts a bit of a bore, but I miss having a garden! I am growing chillies. But a few green stems in flower pots doesn’t equal a garden in full bloom! However we aren’t exactly miles away from the Alameda Botanic Gardens, so whenever I can I… Read More I love flowers!
Oh if only this ‘buzzing’ referred to wild parties, drinks and dancing. It does not. Instead I refer to the massive honey bees of Alameda Botantic Gardens. The Alameda Botanic Gardens is a place where I spent a lot of time this weekend, poking around the flowers to try and find a) insects to photograph… Read More Buzzing weekend…
Flowers. So many flowers… It is the last post to do with the Alameda Botantic Gardens, well for now at least. But if you needed another reason to spend some time there, these beautiful flowers and plants should do the trick! 🙂
Now as we don’t live in the South District anymore, I don’t spend as much time in the gardens, or even just walking through them as much as I used too. But when I do get there it always relaxes me. It is just such a lovely peaceful environment. A vital lung within our increasingly congested… Read More Alameda Botanic Gardens
Last weekend on our jaunt to the zoo it struck me that summer is just around the corner. There was a generous application of sunscreen, and a baseball cap. Maybe this year will be the one where I don’t get sunstroke… And there was a sigh that I was wearing winter weight denim. However whilst… Read More Hotting up…
If you have the chance to go for a walk around the Botanic Gardens please do. The flowers are coming out. The birds are hopping around. There are quite a few changes happening there as well. But mostly it is all about the flowers. Ah the chance to sit among the lovely scents is not… Read More Blooming lovely!
A lovely walk through the Alameda Botanic Gardens yesterday… Still a lot of beautiful blooms on show.
Yesterday I spent some time having a walk around the Alameda Botanic Gardens. Not only was it delightfully sunny and warm, it was also really busy, actually it was busier than I have ever seen it, and it was all local people too, which was nice. After an hour or so (several chats and a… Read More Spring has sprung!
Since we moved to Gibraltar I have heard about the La Linea Wednesday morning market. My lovely neighbour kept reminding me to go, but somehow I just never seemed to get there…. until this week! I’m told the market moves from town to town across the week, but most people from Gibraltar tend to visit… Read More La Linea Market
I love these exotic flowers. I think they are aptly named as well. They do look like a bird. And as they are (in my experience) only found in hot and sunny climates they really are ‘Birds of Paradise’!
On our second visit to Gibraltar, (the frantic three day visit to find and secure our future apartment no less) my estate agent said we had a couple of minutes to spare (Mr BotR was at the bank drawing funds for our deposit) and he took me for a brief look at the Garrison Library.… Read More Garrison Library – Gibraltar
