Another garden tour. Another day of getting wet. This must be the wettest spring we have encountered in the great Spanish city of Granada. It poured down today but the 19 Texan horticulture students we guided around gardens in the city were not too upset about getting wet.
After all, at home, they have seen almost no rain since last October. Incredible!
As they paddled around Spain, it was 86 degrees fahrenheit at home in Texas. But did they complain? No! They did not. What a lovely group of people.
We only wish we could have spent more time with them and in better weather.
The party was made up of keen gardeners from Lubbock and those from New Mexico. Many of them are studying horticulture at Texas Tech University.
After leaving our first garden which they described as "delightful" we walked through the Albaicin in Granada, but we all got soaked as the heavens opened.
But they marched on and broke into song. A chorus of "We're Singing in the Rain" lifted the spirits.
Walking through puddles in torrential rain are not the best conditions in which to walk around the gardens, but it does mean that the they are particularly lush at the moment. The plants are enjoying all this water.
Before we know it, we shall be walking around the gardens of Granada in 40 degree heat.
But, whatever the weather, we are here to make sure you have a fun, informed, relaxed and personal guide to the best green spaces in the city of Granada.
