In brilliant sunshine this morning I hung out some washing and within 10 minutes, hailstones appeared. Oh, good, I can ignore the garden and can sit in front of my PC with impunity...which I did, and read some great familiar blogs. This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson seems apt for many warm, generous people out in blogland..."The best effect of fine persons is felt when we have left their presence". How true.

I came across a Black Box widget - see on the right. Have a go. It will take you to blogs of people who made similar black box choices. My first "hit" was this delightful blog HERE
Another great blog about Spain, in English, to add to my collection. Go have a look. There's a wonderful exhibition in Granada (where the blogger is based) of a Peruvian photographer and if you visit her shop, you'll find some chic home-made cards and other goodies.

Hola LadyLuz,

You had hail? It seems Spain is not what it is cracked up to be from time to time. ;-)

Great quote, thanks for sharing and now I will leave you to enjoy the best effect of you. ;-) (just teasing!)

Oh no! I came over here as I am so cold and was hoping to be warmed up....but hail? We have the same weather.... ours however was icy and we slipped and slid our way down the road t his morning.
I adore that picture at the top of your blog....just gorgeous. Right, shall go ferreting further down for a dose of sunshine.

Lovely to see you gals. And, Jane...sorry got you here under false pretences. We are having a very strange winter this year. Scroll down for last month, clear blue sky and storks circling in the hot thermals.

Yolanda, am loving your posts about Tara....what a cuddlesome bundle.

Ah black boxes! They are fun but I've yet to land on one as lovely as My Castle in Spain - I seem to end up on fundamentalist blogs in the USA. Not sure what that says about me or my choices ...
