This has been a much longer and harder winter than normal here in Girona province, nowhere near as bad as in more northerly countries of course, but everything is relative as they say.

Storm hit Costa Brava - Palamos

Walking along a fairly deserted promenade in Palamos today after some of the worst storms in recent memory over Christmas. Some coastal towns on the south of the Costa Brava like Blanes, Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar suffered severe damage to their beaches, promenades and even flooding to buildings along the beach from the 6metre high waves and 90km winds.

Flowers in May

Spring is here already and it’s begun with an excellent weather for going to the beach and being outdoors. May is the month of flowers and you can see them blooming everywhere in bright colors, popies, roses, lilacs, all sorts of wonderfull wild or garden flowers.

There are some activities you would like considering this month if you like gardens in spring. For instance, in Girona from the 13th to the 21st of May there’s a floral show consisting of patios and spaces with floral arrangements.

Although you don’t need to go that far to enjoy flowers in spring. Excellent places to go this time of the year are Santa Clotilde Gardens only some minutes away from Fenals beach or the Mar I Murtra Botanical Garden in Blanes.
