Beautiful Catalonia

I have just returned from a two week visit to my brother John and sister in law Anna in La Bisbal, Catalonia. Although its still early season there the colours are always stunning so I thought you might enjoy some of the photos.

Their garden is beautiful with so many textures, colours and wonderful objects, like the old well now dominated by an incredible, abundant lemon tree. I really love this garden!

La Bisbal town centre is quite without all the tourists just now so there was plenty of opportunity for wandering and looking. The ceramic industry has been around for many years with plenty of old, tall and elegant brick chimneys to be seen and loads of shops selling wonderful wares. Colour, colour, everywhere!

There is added colour of course from the many flags flying from apartment balconies bearing the Catalonia for Independence emblem.It’s a hive of passionate, political activity and I have great admiration for their cause.
