After weeks of careful pruning and watering, life has returned to the exhausted dry pomegranate tree on level 2. Today I saw the first flowers appearing. A few metres away, the orange tree is is blossom.
Early days. Too soon to know what this means. It’s surely the wrong season for orange blossom?
Meanwhile, most donks sleep in the midday sun but Rubí donk stays alert to ensure the stable is being built to her requirements.
Matilde says, “I don’t care what the stable looks like. As long as we get our food before 8 o’clock, that’s all I care. ”
Sitting down in the dust with donkeys is one of the greatest pleasures of my life.
