Gardening in the Picos de Europa

My Six on Saturday comes to you from sunny Spain, the Picos de Europa to be more specific, where I am easing off after a difficult year. The Propagator will, I hope, allow such a breach of ‘backyard’ information! So, this is gardening in the Picos de Europa.

Six on Saturday in The City Garden
