More of Dave's bull....


Hello there!
Monday's Blog is trees and flowers, right?
Well, avenues lined with orange trees impress me no end!


Oranges, lemons, limes! Really beautiful!


And loaded with fruit too!


We must have walked for miles today!
And if you don't believe me, ask my feet!

Up and up


Down and down! 


Dave sitting down...


Dave propping himself up....


I almost lost him in this veritable rabbit's warren of lanes. It is like a labyrinth. Literally: a-maze-ing.

Caught him talking a load of bull to one of the locals....


Then we caught some simply brilliant music on the steps of the Granada Cathedral.
So uplifting! They are called Elsa Bhor. 





The sun was shining all day, so now I'm sporting a lovely red hooter! 
Sexy!
Hope all is well in Blighty? What's the weather like back home?
Can't believe it's less than 6 weeks to Christmas! 
Saw a Feliz Navidad sign in a shop window today. Completely faded by the sun!

Off to Córdoba today. But Granada is one place I would come back to for sure.

Much love,
Barb xxx

Hi Barbara, me again, my Clarity order has just arrived, I'm happy because I can now make the wedding card for the weekend and Emma my 18 year old daughter is happy because she instantly fell on the corn packing nodules, stuck them all together and made a double helix DNA strand!!!! One happy daughter, one happy mum! Thank you again Clarity. Love Diane xxxxx

  14. Hi Barb,
    Great post from you and please bring me back 6 lemons and 12 oranges! I suppose the weather will be slightly warmer darn sarth, but up here in the norf it's bl**dy cold, miserable and, when not pouring down it's that claggy wet that sticks to your hair and clothes. Not a good look!!!
    Enjoy the rest of your time away and watch out for Matadors. xxx

  15. Oh I need a holiday in the sun! The rain is being rather persistent up here in Cumbria. It looks beautiful there and I can imagine how gorgeous the orange groves smell. So pleased that you're having a lovely time. Was a bit worried when I saw the size of Dave's bull! Very realistic! Think that's a photo for the wall as you both look happy & carefree.
    Enjoy the rest of your day
    Love Jeanette xx

  20. Good to see you having a great time; thanks for sharing the lovely pictures and experiences. I enjoyed your stone tile of yesterday's post. I do that too when I see a suitable artefact, and some end up on cards. Granada's terrific, also the lovely song of many moons ago - I love all Latin and Latin American music. I have an earworm now! Hope I haven't planted one on you. Enjoy your time away. x

  22. Blue skies, fluffy white and shades of grey clouds here. Beautiful orange leaved trees and a real nip in the air definately heading for winter. Lovely pics, looks like you are having a lovely time.

  23. Granada looks great Barbara and so lovely and sunny, very grey and wet here in the south west. Have a safe journey to Cordoba. x

  24. It has been very grey (not Barbara Gray cos that would be good) and soggy all morning but is now brightening up. Still some bright yellow leaves on a couple of trees to brighten the world. After a morning playing at Craft Club, I am now busy sorting out all the Christmas stuff that is still around from doing my cards. Glad you are having such a good time and some decent weather. xx Maggie

  25. You are certainly in the best play! Continue to make the most of it! I've been having a go at some Christmas cards with the one of the It was the night before .... sets, based on inspiration from Jane Telford. It's slow going but we've just purchased a new dining room table which will be nearly twice the space of our current one (although the current one is when it's out full but we don't keep it out full - why? I hear you ask perhaps - well, I don't know!!!). Anyway, hubby fell in love with this new one, not me, and I'll be grumbling when I have to dust it as it's black glass ....always said I wouldn't have a glass one! Anyway more instant space for crafting downstairs as I'm finding space upstairs getting a bit tight! Sorry for digressing!

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday Barbara and Dave!

  35. Glad you're having a really good time, but that amazing play on words was bad!! Laughed though.
    On Anglesey we had a lovely sunny weekend, quite warm as well, but now we're back to the dull, but not dank or wet yet.

  36. Lucky you. We went to Granada two years ago and I loved it. You'll sleep like a baby tonight. Cordoba is nice too, but have really prefered Granada. Enjoy your time and the sun. It is raining in France today.

  37. well it's damp and grey here. bring some sunshine back with you will you? good to see you having some relaxing time hugs xx

  38. Hi Barbara. Loving the photos and getting a fix of blue sky from them as it was grey skies all day long here in Oxfordshire with rain at times. Keep on relaxing. Just wandering around a new place is the best way to see it rather than following a guide or map I think. Rest your feet tonight ready for another trek tomorrow. Take care.

  39. Sounds great where you are but cold, cloudy and damp in Northumberland. Hope you enjoyed Cordoba. Pat x

  41. It all looks great Barbara. Lovely Place. X Well I think I live in a street with a roof on it because for the last year I have been listening to everyone's bad weather reports and we have had non of it - it's mild, you sort of need a coat very little rain, no snow??? And yet I was sure I lived in the Frozen North??
