|Remember my pergola? This is my favourite shot for this post-clouds over pergola!|
|This is my second favourite - clouds above my Blue Pine.|
I couldn't carry on referring to these clouds as "Scurry" all my life, could I? So, I checked it out, and comparing the photographs to my Scurry Cloud photographs, the nearest match I could find was "altocumulus". Oh alright, Alto is quite a cute name too.
To satisfy my curiosity, I found out some interesting gossip about our boy Alto - known to carry water droplets but can also carry ice-droplets when temperatures are low enough! Not a high-flier, though - a mid-level kind of cloud, hovering between 2,000 to 6,000 metres. I could tell that from his name... . Now Cirrus, though, that's a high flier! We'll meet him sooner or later.
|Don't you just get a strange feeling looking at a sky like that?|
|I just love the garden sign. Wish I had one like it.|
|This is how the streets in the village of Sitges is made memorable for me. One snapshot for my album!|
|This typically Mediterranean balcony window display is THE essential Mediterranean icon. In every village, town or city- even in shop windows, the lovely terracotta pots with their geraniums made me yearn to transform one part of my own garden into that LOOK!|
Display Number 3: Proud Petunias on the Wall Look.
Where else but in the Mediterranean would you find displays of petunias in such a rustic setting as this? This snapshot is one of my favourites - taken in the town of Valdemossa, these were on the wall outside a souvenir shop in a quaint narrow street. It was along this street that we had the best hot chocolate - thick and heavenly sweet - so much appreciated on that chilly spring day. Another snapshot that brings back fond memories for me.
Display Number 4: Rambling Roses On Moss-covered Wall Look
This makes me think I've travelled back in time and I expect to see Don Quixote de la Mancha walk down the steps beside where the roses are clinging to the wall, saying to me, 'Welcome to my hacienda, Senorita Rosie".
I hope these snapshots from my album bring some kind of nostalgic associations of the Mediterranean to you as well.
