Happy New Year!
We are seven days into 2012 and I have yet to post about my holiday trip to Spain.
One word to sum it up:
Of course, the very best part was seeing our daughter, Bianca.
She was a wonderful hostess and guide, enabling us to see Spain through her eyes.
I'm still going through photos (800+) and selecting favorites for sharing. However, today I want to focus on a little town in the island of Mallorca. It was a 50 minute bus ride from Palma.... and is called Soller.
The views on our way up to Soller were breathtaking.
Our first glimpses of Soller literally took our breath away!
Like something straight out of a story book.
The little town Plaza was decked out for the holidays.
you looked there was something beautiful to see.
The windows, doors, little vignettes along the sidewalks....
And just when I thought I had gotten over all that beauty, we came upon this iron fence.
And behind it... this lovely private garden~
And as my eyes wandered, identifying known plants and trying to figure out what others were, I spotted one.
A pink rose!
I crammed my camera between the fence bars, zoomed in, trying to get a better shot.
Still a bit blurry, yet magnificent.
A total surprise!
But wait.... is that?
another pink rose?!?
The perfect little town.
The perfect day.
p.s. I'm slowly but surely getting back into my real life (lol).
Linking up to Beverly's Pink Saturday party and sharing by Soller pink roses.
