Growing tomatoes in my urban garden

This year, I’m growing tomatoes in my urban garden once again. A friend of mine handed me the plants on June, perhaps a little late. Anyway, after more than two months of growing, my tomatoes are finally ripening. We tried this red one today and it had a wonderful flavor. It’s still hot here in […]

We went for lunch at Artemisa, our favourite vegetarian restaurant in Madrid for years to celebrate my birthday. I took my Fujifilm X-Pro1 along.

The spider of Day 1 is now displaying all of its colors on the cobweb it made. The pine tree buds are slowly but surely growing, though. It’s been a bit windy lately, so it’s being kind of difficult to capture the sprouts and all of the other small details. The picture has been taken […]
