Sunny, warm days in January are priceless really. Having met my deadlines for this week, and having put in three days' work at home it was time for some fresh air, some seemingly aimless wandering; but really this is a great way to recharge the batteries before continuing on some more work, currently a drawing commission and some writing. Needless to say my camera is my ever-present companion on these long walks - in this case a three hour walk exploring lanes and garigue around Bidnija. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed the walking...
A quiet lane in Bidnija - it's surprising that after more than fifty years of living here I can still find the odd previously undiscovered lane here and there.
The first brown orchids are out. I simply love the intricate structure of orchids.
Another previously undiscovered track leads me to some great views over Wied Qannotta.
View from atop il-Qolla towards Gebel Ghawzara.
The ideal dream home complete with private chapel in Wied Qannotta.
A seemingly endless field of artichokes...
