Under the surface



"...the roots
of our landscape. Pull up the roots

and what do we see but the night..."

From "Coastal Plain" by Kathryn Stripling Byer

That looks like where I grew up upto age about 12 in high high summer.... that being AUGUST though not DECEMBER and highest summer STILL being in AUGUST... wow the weather by you is AMAZING...

they say Southern Spain and Greece are similar to Texan/Californian climate but that's not true... I've BEEN to Southern Spain in December it's pretty temperate... NOTHING like those photos of yours show there at ALL!!
