I know that I'm going on and on about the spring that is just not coming. But now it is close, so close. The sun has been shining for over a week now, but since it is still cold the snow just does not want to go away. But I found these small flowers on a sunny slope this afternoon while walking the dog. So there is hope!
But there is more one can do to get that spring feeling. For example hacking up all the ice and snow on the porch, so it will melt faster in the sun, and plant seeds. I have done both. And I'm so happy that my small geraniums are doing alright. And more things are to come and this summer I will have both flowers and herbs and vegetables that are all home grown! But the final and most important way of forcing and enhancing the feeling of spring is after all Rosé Cava! So this afternoon I put a very nice and fruity bottle from Valformosa on ice (literaly as you can see). And now when I'm done writng this I'll pop the cork together with my darling husband.
I can highly recommend Valformosas Rosé, because it will make anyone happy. Based on Granacha and Monastrell it has that fantastic fruity, meditarainian style that is to die for! Next time you are close to Villafranca, you should really take the time to visit them. Situated just 5 minutes outside the city centre.
This is my Friday tip to you... Take someone you love and share something nice with them, a glass of cava, some food, a hug, a nice memory from the spring last, and you'll see that you will get that warm spring feeling.
