Signs of Spring

While it’s no secret that I love this short-lived season in Seville, we are getting it a bit early. It’s technically winter for a few more days, but we’re already enjoying longer hours of sun, warm temperatures and very little rain – in Galicia, it’s rained 30% less than normal. While I’m all about a rainless winter (I’m a Chicagoan, so the less nasty weather we have in Seville, the more I’m convinced that this is the place for me!), it may all come during Spring’s big festivals, Semana Santa and la Feria de Abril.

Spring is in full-swing here, so I’m set to enjoy. Seville’s hallmarks during primavera are well-known and best enjoyed outdoors. We’re enjoying temperatures in the low 70s, azahar in full bloom and festivals atope. Though April showers may bring more flowers come May, I’m heading out on every sunny day.

As for me, I’m using my glorious primavera moments to put off doing exam grades for another day, ignore my blog, and travel to Galicia, Turkey, Zaragosa, Murcia and London.

  1. Someone’s getting some use out of their new camera, eh?

    I especially like the flower shot–why type of flower is that?

    • Camarón and I are like peas in a pod…and I have to learn how to use him!

      The flower is azahar, a wonderfully intoxicating blossom that’s only around for a short time. It’s what comes from the naranjo, silly!

      I should comment on your blog, but I enjoyed your shots.

  2. Ahhh that looks so nice! I bet the azahars smell amazing.

    Jealous you guys aren’t getting rain…it’s supposed to rain all week here in Barcelona!
