Based on the intense heat of the day I can see how easy it would be to become a complete and utter slug in June, July and August when the heat here is at it’s peak. I was motivated to do absolutely nothing, and other than a walk with Marc this morning, that’s exactly what I did. NOTHING!
This lush green beside me is a massive sage plant that is cascading down over our patio.
Marc and I headed into the mountains via an old farm road. So very many of them around which makes it great for choosing various locations for walking or hiking.
Look at this amazing hedge of cactus….it goes on for quite a distance and, as you can see, is quite tall.
The Old Gray Mare…….loved her treats that Marc picked for her.
She was a little timid, we couldn’t touch her for long or she pulled away but what a beauty.
The sage plant is starting to flower.
More of the sage flower, it’s very delicate looking and such a wonderful shade of purple or periwinkle blue!
Another section of our chosen path this morning.
These old retaining walls are all up and down the mountain in a terraced fashion. Wanted to give you an idea of the height of some of them…..it;s not just so you can appreciate my legs!!!
I love the expression on her face.
Once home we had an errand to run but then came back here and enjoyed a light lunch on our upstairs terrace. We both felt like a coffee afterwards and decided to walk down to Ana’s to enjoy a bica and a visit…….and who did we run into but a Yoko Ono look alike…
Yes, Diane and Benoit were enjoying a little solitude, which we quickly interrupted…..I’m not even certain if we asked them if we could join them, we simply sat!!!
And as all good evenings come to a close, and thankfully a cooler one…
