Thu, 18 Apr 2013 10:15:47 +0100good times, in a rougher blowing wind.
there where friends, like juan and diana. the teachers of the new spanish school in santiago de compostella, and in valladolid in the heart of the kastilia. it was surprising, how many people still try to learn, in the hardly effecting mediterranian financial pressure. how the days could not be long and intense enough for them, who could come. the two teachers took good care for me, in many ways... helped to get the materials together, the same as much the family of my old friend xavier fom valladolid, with his son in law oscar and his wife maria, opening their garden for greens and materials of many kind. the sorrow, to not make it suitable enough for this countries florists, who face a situation, that everything in this market can only cost the half. "la mitar... " thats the word for the half. I am more than impressed, that the spanish collegues still cultivate their profession in between themselves..... not related purely on the businesses. which means, that the creative process is not interrupted in a rougher blowing wind. I hope some of them reed this, that they know, how much I appreciated their engagement. the flowers where just homeproduction of spain, no rare beauties of the world most important auctions. it works also in a little more pollied way.... or not??? gre]]>Read more on Facebook
