The mimosas ... what a magic flower! Its yellow light is already transforming the views... Today I went for a drive through one of the most beautiful roads outside Alghero: the road to Capo Caccia and Porto Conte.
During March the green sides of the road (all acacia and mimosa trees) start to color themselves with these amazingly bright yellow grapes. All along the road it is just like you are passing through a wedding arch of spring! I can smell its scent even from inside the car....
Wonderful feeling.... and I will drive by times and times again, during all April too and sometimes May, to fill up my eyes.
... 1 more week and I will send photo of the road fully blossomed!

yes! ... finally the first real sign of Springtime coming!
these last two days in Alghero was the official welcoming of the spring and the beginning of "WINTER CIAO CIAO" !!!
Even though winter here is not an unbearable season, being always milder compared to the rigid Northern Europe winter, we were starting to be fed up by coats and scarves... they are NOT what we like to wear around here!
So, finally ... everybody out of the house, coats in the cupboards; children running on the sand makes you happy ... in Alghero while you walk around the port side, you can reach in a minute the beautiful white sand beach of San Giovanni and watch how people around here enjoy the first days out after winter season.
Algae is everywhere on the sand... and some might say " oh .. the beach is not clean.." ... actually THAT is the real sign that the beach but specially the water are perfectly clean...
We are preparing for the season.... we are starting to feel that we will start
early this time.... maybe because is going to be a late Easter this year...
24th of April...this is when we start to expect the first tourist presence... (even if tourists enjoy Alghero also in winter time).
so, yes.... I saw the light of Springtime!...It is a very different light in the sky... spring sounds, spring smells, spring light....
I love it!
PS: ... and I will start to post for you more and more photos I make around so you can feel, my friends, what is this "light" I am talking about.... you will love it too!
