Monday Morning Photo - Wisteria Time in Andalucia

How quickly spring comes around after the short winter here in the Sierra Sur de Jaén. After lots of very much needed rain we´re back to the normal cloudless blue.  My garden is shooting incredbily with the moisture and now sunshine. And my beautiful wisteria flowers grandly albeit it short-lived. The big black carpenter bees love it. Each flowering season reminds me of the Botanical Gardens in Malaga and the ´tunnel´ of wisteria that I haven´t yet caught in bloom. April is a good time to plan to go if it´s on your list.  Here´s the botanical garden link La Concepción Botanical Gardens. And a sneaky peak at the wisteria. See the Monday Morning Photos list.

Spain - UK - Spain Again

After another not so pleasant trip back to the UK again, I´m a champion of ParkingMar in San Julian just 1km out from Malaga airport. My only complaint is that they don´t valet the inside of my car!

It shines for ages after it has been under their care for 5 Euro a day. I take it in filthy mainly due to the mass of growth and the sparrows that like to roost in the vine and honeysuckle shade I created for the cars.

Hubby even noticed, several days later, that my car was (different) clean and shiny.

I left Birmingham airport at 6.50am on Tuesday morning with a cloudless sky and arrived to rain and it has on and off ever since.

But - rain means not so cold overnight. Rain means cloud and no frost. How can I complain? Please tell me.

If you´re looking for cheaper parking at Malaga airport take the turning to the airport, at the roundabout take direction Malaga then San Julian. The parking (I think it´s ParkingMar) that I´ve used several times is the first one under the bridge on the left. A great and helpful bunch of chaps and excellent washers of cars.

Hopefully there´ll be no more emergency and follow-up UK trips for a while.

Buses and trains are frequent from outside arrivals, there are two direct buses to Granada a day, otherwise it´s a bus into Malaga bus station and then plenty of connections are available.
