For all of you being interested in walking and hiking:
now it´s the time to do it.
From March to May, it isn´t yet too hot, still the weather can be sunny and warm and all is green and lush from the winter.
The dunes start flowering, the sun has already some strength
and the Costa Vicentina is one of the most unspoiled costal regions in Europe
But also the south coast has a lot of treasures.
I did a hike near Armação de Pera last week with a friend.
Behind the dunes of the beach east of Armação we came across trees I´ve never seen before and still don´t know how they are called. They didn´t have leaves nor needles, just a kind of green twig and they were flowering in an abundace, it was just absolutely stunning. And the scent!....
Also around the house there are such wunderful walks

It was raining quite a bit in the last days.... stormy, too.
The water together with the sunny days we had before gave a real boost to nature.
My fruit trees, pampered with some manure last autumn, start to push some green or already flower.
Funny enough, of some I don´t even know what kind of tree they are. It will be one of my surprises to see, what kind of fruit they make :-)
Even the poor little lemon tree , which struggled so badly, starts to do better and makes a little bud.
And the orange and the manderine trees, I planted new last October start growing
Spring is not on its way, it has arrived already........
The next days should be sunny with temperatures way over 20 degree Celsius
Let´s get the shorts and T-shirts out...........
