What’s this about?
This is Peter and Maureen Scargill's Spanish website. We live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarity, that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

We've had a home in Spain for more than 14 years and it is now our permanent base though we retain a small home in the UK.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

Our first grapevine, the hot-tub and more

GrapevineWe went off shopping yesterday for a grapevine and a suitable pot. Bring back B&Q, all is forgiven – the gardening centre near Baza is SOOOO very expensive. To give you an idea – they sell single solar lamps – the type you get at B&Q for maybe £30 for 10 ie £3 each max.  Well, they’re 15 Euros EACH at the garden centre!  Anyway we got our grapevine and it’s up and running.

GrapevineThere’s a lot more to this than it looks at first sight of course – first there is the large hole in the ground needed for the roots – then the large hole in the bottom of the pot…. then the stringing arrangement. Of course this has SO VERY FAR to go…. but ultimately our pergola should be nicely shaded with it’s very own grapevine!

Karen and Dave's CaveWhile I’m on – a request for a picture of Karen and Dave’s cave (our neighbours) – don’t say I’m not helpful…. 🙂

AND a picture of our newly re-positioned hot-tub!
