As I always do when I first arrive, I explore the garden, looking for the tortoise. Found her sunning herself next to a few leaves.
A few minutes later, I strolled down the garden to take a picture of the plants so different from my garden in Albuquerque.
And wanted to show off Zorro. Nice to have a dog so I don't miss Mishka and Gizmo.
Sunday the girls have horseback riding classes.
Selma is the one in red in the back
who ends up in the foreground.
And Kenza is galloping on the
feisty brown and white pony.
Sunday afternoon we planted the seeds I brought from the States.
The garden, which was all grass that morning, was cleared by hand by the gardener. Better him than me. That was hard work. Now we wait and see if the seeds sprout.
