I adore the bougainvillea in Spain, the purple & red hues signify summer to me. I love how the leaves scatter across our driveway, drift across the surface of the pool, leaving dots of pretty colour everywhere. And in what has officially been declared a drought down here in the south, it is marvel they are blossoming so beautifully. It’s blissful here and life is simple. There are stunning sunsets, a constant supply of quinoa & 2 great big dogs that pull me out of the funk I have been in recently. I miss people I shouldn’t and feel frustrated for reasons I couldn’t explain. All the while, I’m a little bit stuck in some sort of haze, where nothing feels quite right. But there is sunshine, the sea & a summer I am so happy to enjoy, let’s hope the warm weather evaporates all these weird feelings of mine!
