Our neighbours sister and her husband arrived from Getafe on Thursday. We have a gate at the end of our garden that goes into their garden, it is now padlocked as we don't want sister wandering through our garden. Told them to stay away for at least 2 weeks. This morning their cousin arrived to thei...

Kaki ' trees'

About 12 years ago we chopped down our kaki tree, since then we have ' kaki ' trees popping up everywhere. If we chop them back they just send up shoots elsewhere in the garden. Any ideas on how to actually kill them off once and for all?

Re: Kitchen cupboard paint

A bit late in replying here, I have been AWOL for a while. I have painted the kitchen cupboards with Bruguer Ultra Resist, Adios a las manchas.
I have painted the white cupboards a soft grey. They ( touch wood ) look great 4 months later.

Re: gota fria this weekend?

Our local town, Morón de la Frontera, Sevilla had bad flooding yesterday, nothing compared to Campillos where a fireman has lost his life in the flooding. The A92 has been shut near Estepa ( I think ) raining again here, we have had thunder for a few hours and now raining again.

Re: Its cold!

We sat watching the flamenco show Carmen del Salvador Tavero last night, it started at 22.00and finished just before midnight. It was pretty cold, the bull ring was freezing! I think summer is due to start here , just east of Sevilla, next week.

Every time we go to Sevilla we find something new and interesting. One day we came across a small square with a wall plaque dedicated to a neighbours husband's aunty. She was a Nun who could heal people, she was made a Saint.

Re: Tiny fly, with white wings

I did wonder if anything to do with prickly pears. The plants along our track are very badly affected by a white fungi, look like the hedge is almost dead. The fungus is spreading on cactus further along track too.

Thanks for the reply Torredelaguila

Tiny fly, with white wings

And when I say tiny I mean very tiny. We have had loads at night. They leave a red mark if killed. Never seen them before, the door the other night was covered in them.

We had paid the quarterly charges the previous week to Unicaja for the pleasure of our account always being in credit. We asked to withdraw the final amount, about 14€ the ...
