Felis silvestris - I still haven´t seen strawberries from Germany, they must have been grown under foil. I am looking forward to the ones grown without foil, but for a gusto I also already buy some imported ones ;)

Airras - the bunny will surely return for more food on the plate :mrgreen: Good luck for your olives this year :2thumbsup:

Spatz yes we are the first in the production of olive oil, and also the best quality in the world. catalonia have good oil in the area of Tarragona, but Mallorie is produced in the south of the country (Andalucia) there you can find the best oils.
here I leave a link where you can see a classification of the best oils

May 10th, 2014

Yesterday there was in the early evening violent rain, hail and several thunderstorms in our town.

After that the sky shows different colors round about our house.
I was fascinated of it.
On the right there is a second rainbow.

I followed the suggestion it was delicious. I am going to try to split up my chives and plant some of them around the apple tree because I read they make a good plant pair.
