Anyway, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time at my parents’ farm lately and from week to week I’ve noticed that spring had arrived. Each week there are new flowers in bloom.
I fell in love with this Rose, I love roses and I’d seen this type before, but never her in Portugal, so when I saw a guy selling them at the market , and he was only asking 8.5 Euros for it (It’s quite a big plant), I had to get it for my mum, who also loves roses. So it was my gift to her on Mother’s Day which we celebrated here last Sunday. (It was also as a way of an apology for my naughty dog’s behaviour while she was taking care of him one day last week, the little rascal peed on the brand new curtains, and he had the nerve to be looking right at my mum as if to say, see I’m being naughty and you can’t do anything about it).
These lovely pink flowers below are growing in our garden, but this picture was taken inside the house, as my mum cut some and put them in a vase to brighten up the table by the TV.
Before you know it I’ll be picking blackberries (I have a great recipe that I’ll share some time soon), and figs, as the fig tree is already full, and so in about 2 weeks time we’ll be picking the first figs, and if it’s like last year, we’ll be picking them all the way till the end of September. I’m really looking forward to all the fruits I’ll be picking this year.
