Isn't it stunning and all the while as you meander through the views and vistas you see different crops growing everywhere. The Figs are just coming into season now and I can't wait to experiment with them. Last year TBH made the most wonderful upside down Fig Cake, lets hope he hasn't forgotton the recipie.
It never fails to amaize me just how much is being grown here, have you ever wondered where the red syrup grenadine comes from for those Tequilla Sunrise cockatails, from this the Pommegranate plant. First it graces us with the most vibrant pillar box red flower and then the flower is pushed out as the fruit forms and finally the fruit sits on the tree ripening daily under the glorious Cyprus sun ahh the beauty of nature.
The olive tree's too showere us with beautiful little white flowers in the spring and at present the fruits are growing and bobbing about on their branches in the afternoon breeze waiting for the autmn when families from the villages will gather in the olive groves to harvest their crop.
Back at home and we made the most of the late afternoon sun with a small stroll across the field opposite the house where Wild Thyme clings to the edge of the rocky cliff.
We parked ourselves at Impi ridge ( named this as it is where our male tom cat Impi likes to cast an eye over the plains below just as he would do if he were a lion look down on the herds of Zebra in the Mara) to watch the sun gow down, leaving long shadows across the valley below and eventually going to bed behind the mountains in the distantce.
The end of another Hay Bale Happiness Day.
