Weekend in Greenery

Some pictures from Malta in early March.

I have a little too much around me right now but tomorrow I’ll take the time to visit You!
You are my inspiration, take care out there!

Spring Flowers

Just a few scenes from last weekend. All from Ta Qali National Park here in Malta, except the last one.Some trees are blooming now……while most are still bare.

This flower is a bit special, I’ve shown it before but have no idea what it’s called..This yellow one is very common in spring, often seen blooming all over the meadows like a carpet of flowers.Another small and colorful flower and that’s all for today. Now I’ll go for a walk with Fanny… …and today we will walk along this path.

Dogs! I know that some of you aren’t interested at all, like me when it comes to sport. But this weekend when we let Fanny run freely without leash for the first time she was exceedingly happy, and so was I!!

I have read so much about letting Basenjis run freely. They completely ignore you and take the opportunity to search for their own adventures. That´s not true, she ran away but not too far without being aware of where we were.There were also exciting meetings with other dogs in Ta Qali National Park.

Suzy was friendly, just trying to scare you with her ugly smile while another dog just laughed. At home  after a fantastic weekend!  She´s now seven months old and I love her so much…

Nature’s diversity

Above is part of where I walk with Fanny every morning. The rocks along the Mediterranean stretch from Sliema Pitch to Balluta Bay. It takes more or less an hour and a half back and forth if we walk pretty fast, including stops when we meet other dogs..I love the scenery and Fanny jumps with joy along the rocks.

In the weekends we take the car to Ta Qali National Park where nature is completely different. This is a large recreation area with walkways and a wide range of plants and trees as well as animal species.

We are not far from the rocks near home but we are in a completely different scenery.

Here we find lots of greenery and beautiful plants, many of which I’ve never seen. This is part of nature’s diversity on this small island in the Mediterranean Sea.

Why Malta – This is my Malta part 4

Yesterday we went to the countryside as we often do during the weekends. Chapels like these are often seen along the country roads, while all the small villages and towns have their magnificent churches in the center.Some flowers I found in Ta Qali National Park while Fanny ran around and explored the lush surroundings.

For me, this flower is unique. They are quite small and you don’t notice the colors if you’re not really close. There are lots of these rare flowers that bloom now here in Malta.  In my next post, I’ll show almond trees that already blooming on the island.

Monday’s mix of weekend pics

Another wonderful weekend at Ta Qali National Park here in Malta.

It feels like spring is already here when I see all these flowers but still, only 16-17 degrees in the air.What is this? One of nature created works of art!A small visitor, I wish I saw more of them.

Now that we have Fanny, we go to the park every weekend. I feel so happy when I see her running in the high grass and how she really enjoys it. She is now 6 months old and not always easy to catch with my camera…

Weekend pics from Malta

Above you see pictures from our terrace and below from Ta Qali National Park where we went with Fanny last weekend. We also found a Dog Park but Fanny is too young to visit it, we have to wait until she is at least six month old. But she enjoyed the other part of the park while we trained her to walk well kept on leash.

Accent (161/365)

Det hörs ju inte men den här artisten hade en utpräglad accent, ett tonfall, en klang och en tydlig nyans i sitt sätt att framträda med sin röst och musik. Han lyckades dessutom trollbinda den yngre publiken med sin charm.

Festival (160/365)

Här är vi på årets Earth Garden Festival som i helgen ägde rum i Ta Qali National Park. Klädd för fest, med blommor i håret och ett leénde som gjort för att mingla och lyssna på det stora utbudet av levande musik. Festligt, folkligt och fullsatt med en röd tråd, att återvinna, bevara och ta vara på vår planet, jorden.

Intresse (158/365)

Från The Earth Garden Festival i Ta Qali National Park som förutom valet just nu äger rum här på Malta. Många bilder blev det varav den här från gårdagens besök. Vi är många som delar hennes intresse.
