This is the roof of my suite with the landlady's house behind it.
The house was over 100 years old and needed repairs - the stone mason was working there in March - but it was full of antiques and I thought it was beautiful.
The landlady, her son, and a dog and a cat lived there. During the week, she would make up jam, and then sell them on Saturday at Salamanca Market .
So on the hot afternoons, and because there is a tin roof on the suite, I would open my door and this is what I would see ....
And the flowers were already blooming when I got there..
