Pimientos

Home grown peppers

We are growing more peppers in our new cortijo than we can eat so this morning I picked this caja full and took it to Antonio of Bar/Retaurant Perez in the square at Alhabia so they could be incorporated into the delicious tapas and meals they serve there. I like the colours – typical Spain.

Old door in Terque

A photo I took yesterday in the nearby village of Torque. Most of the photos I took were of the magnificent buildings in the village – see – https://countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com/2017/08/13/casas-monumentales-terque/ – but I thought I would add this one to this blog as I thought it was an interesting exercise in colour, texture and composition.

La Casa de El Carrero, La Chanca, Almeria

La Casa de El Carrero

We went for a walk up through the old quarter of Almeria, La Chanca , this morning. The little houses here are painted in many different hues making the area very colourful despite the decay and poverty. This house I thought was particularly charming.
