This year the weather forgot the script.
We've just had one of the driest winters on record here in Portugal. Almost 5 months from November to March with hardly a drop. It has now, graça de Deus, begun to rain a bit more. Not yet a thousand waters, but showers every few days.
With the new Spring rains, the flowers finally make their entrance. With a huge sigh of relief. Not because the cold dark winter has ended and sunshine is on tap, but they let their breath out for all the world to see because they've been dry as a bone for their hibernation this winter.
Water is life. We, like the plants all around us in the gardens and forest, are grateful it's raining.
Facebook page. It really was as lovely as it looked. Thanks Von. You're the best.
Earlier in March we finally put up our new Vale de Moses website, which was fun to make thanks to a great design company in Braga called Seegno. Highly recommended if you're looking for web design. At the same time we went up on Facebook too, and have been overwhelmed by the response. Such lovely words people have expressed especially from the Portuguese.
Peace and all good things to you
