Ever seeking to answer the call.
Living in a small village in the Lecrin Valley near Granada, Spain. Beautiful 100 years old farmhouse, orange and lemon trees, olives, almonds,garden... we are living a life that seemed beyond reach regardless of what we desired or worked for... until one day it was no longer out of reach because we were in it. I'm still sorting out how we arrived here myself so that is about all I have to say in that regard for now.
Today... it is Springtime! La Primavera. After a relatively mild and dry winter which still managed to kick my ass despite its lack luster performance, the hope and energy that I adore about this season is welcomed! I am giving Gaia all the glory it is due. Yes indeed - we have spring fever!
Las Flores de Azahar - The orange blossoms have been on the verge of bursting until a couple days of saturating rain gave them the nudge they needed. Today they are opening bit by bit all over the place. Word is out to the honey bees of the grand openings and things are buzzing. I will be packing my homeoptathic apis in my pocket at all times - ready to ward off bad reaction to stings. Just in case!
With so many azahar blossoms coming I am researching how to dry them and use them in teas and infusions. Of course the more I research the more ideas I come across of what I can do with these little beauties. I am excited to choose a few to try out this year. Deciding from so many possibilities may be a challenge!
