Something different today – I saw the shadow cast by a tall poplar tree in our communal garden on the hotel that’s beside our block of apartments and, thankfully, slight to the right of our apartment so we will have views to the Mediterranean. I just liked the idea of the tree and shadow in the early morning and because the poplar is such a tall, graceful tree.
Note the lovely blue skies we’re now experiencing in North Cyprus – temperatures are up to 19C this week and I’m a short-sleeved top. This poplar is still without leaves, although the small ones beside the road running past our apartment block have just started putting out buds. The almond trees are in blossom, the hawthorn and pomegranate trees are in leaf, the roses are blooming and our bougainvilleas are coming into leaf again after they were a bit battered by a week of harsh winds in January.
