A Home in Spain
Posted May 22, 2015on:
We have been busy moving into our new (to us) home in Spain. It is the ground floor unit of a multi unit complex in an urbanization called Los Dolses, on a quiet street overlooking a field of shrubs and trees including an abandoned lemon and orange grove. Now that most of the boxes are unpacked, we spend much of our time on the terrace relaxing and watching the many birds that make their home in the trees. We can often hear peacocks, parrots, nightingales and cuckoos to name a few. Here are some pictures to give you an idea of our place.
Tons of room for flowers on the sunny terrace and outdoor area. We even have our own palm tree, which was in bad need of a haircut when we moved in. Looks much better now.
I love the cactus garden planted by the pervious owners. Imagine my delight when a cactus burst into bloom the other day.
We live about ten minutes by car from the many beaches in the area. We also have the use of a pool, part the complex, which is at the end of the street. I usually have it to myself.
We still have some pictures to hang and a few more boxes to unpack, but we are feeling at home.
