How can we complain about the rain when it is filling our well and the pond. Will we be able to be self sufficient in water? It has to be the most essential part of our life here as there is no municipal water supply. That means the only body that can cut off our water supply is Mother Nature.

Here are some photos of the Finca dripping wet in February.

Not sure what we do about the mimosa tree and all the suckers it produces. Not a native species?

Our next post will be about our escape to the Algarve and a walk around the fort at the edge of the town of Cabanas. It is our favourite place for bird watching and although only about 100 miles from the Sierra Aracena spring is in full bloom and the swallows have arrived.

  1. Hi, your NavNat (excuse my abbreviation!) site is fantastic. I look forward to ‘sharing’ your journey to become closer to nature. Finca’s carpet of moss and lichen is beautiful.Winter will soon be moving on and in the meantime you have inspired me to also follow the Kew Gardens seasonal bulb and plant diary. xxG2G

    1. Am enjoying my time at Kew and it is certainly adding a botanical edge to my journey and the learning to draw accurately is hard!
