Hibiscus, Festa Major and Clock Tower

01 Sep

1. This beautiful Hibiscus and the resulting Okra are growing on the balcony in Granollers near Barcelona where we are visiting for a week with our son and daughter-in-law.

2. Yesterday evening we strolled about the town in the midst of the crowds enjoying the last day of the Festa Major. The streets were full of happy families enjoying the music and dancing, the puppets and the fireworks and the shopping.





3. I love the delicacy of this clock tower in the centre of the town.

      So glad you are enjoying the view. Sorry I can’t visit you when away – my iPad won’t let me (somehow those words remind me of a song!). 🙂
