Balcony, Oranges and Knitting 

The sun shone on the Geraniums on this colourful balcony in Canovelles.

We love to see oranges growing in gardens here in Spain. We don’t see this at home in Cornwall.

Oldest LiveWire has completed the first square for her blanket for her baby brother and sister whose arrival we are still awaiting!

Another Sculpture, Fountain and Dog Parking

We went looking for another of the sculptures by Jessour Agustson today and found one of a child feeding the pigeons. When there is water in this pond, she will look as if she is getting a drink of water. I would love to see her reflection when there is water present.

On our walk back we found a fountain playing in the sunlight.

Just down the road from where the family lives is this charming sign.

Sculpture, Wedding and Snowman

Going on the bus this afternoon from Canovelles to Granollers we passed a couple of people sculptures. I loved this one of a girl reading by the bus stop in Canovelles. I took the photo through the bus window.

In the centre of Granollers, near the Christmas market, we heard lots of cheering and realised that a wedding had just taken place in the rather lovely council offices.

By the time we returned to Canovelles, it was dark and the delightful Snowmen were lit up on each Main Street into town.

By the way, we had a very skilled interpreter with us helping with all our shopping – our eight year old Granddaughter, the oldest of our Livewires who speaks five languages! She grew up with Wolof, started school in Senegal being taught in French, met D who became her Daddy so she learned English and now lives in Spain where she can now speak both Spanish and Catalan. She is learning Italian from her Uncle!

Dawn, Mountains and Marigolds

What a delight to fly into the dawn, a compensation for getting up at 4.30am!

Flying over The Pyrenees was very beautiful.

And now we are in Canovelles with the family, enjoying warm sunshine and getting ready for Christmas. On a stroll around the area we came across some planters full of marigolds where bees were busy collecting nectar.

Canovelles Sunday Market in Pictures

We spent the morning at the best market I have ever seen, in Canovelles – fabulous range of goods, huge numbers of shoppers and delightful smells from all sort of stalls all squeezed  into the streets between the buildings and going on for street after street.
