|Romy as tomato... looking utterly edible.|
|In the main square waiting to start the parade around the streets.|
|As well as fruit and veg, there were spiders...|
|And elves...this is one of my little pupils....looks like butter wouldn't melt....|
|There were pizza chefs - Romy's old classmates from Alonso de Alcala primary|
|One of my students from last year - I saw lots of them and got a |
good many hugs, which was lovely!
|There was a sparkly band...|
|Little mice and kittens - cutest things you've ever seen.|
|Houses big and small...|
|An amazing turn out from the disabled group - countries of the world -|
|So much work has gone in to these costumes...|
|And from the Residential Home, there were gnomes....|
|Some of them clearly had no idea what was going on, whilst other were having a great time....|
|And even had toadstool umbrellas!|
|And here come the fruit and veg again....|
No rain, plenty sunshine and a lovely - if slightly smaller than usual - parade. Not all the children came out, which was a shame for some of them. But they made a lovely cheerful sight after the rather miserable month. The main Carnaval procession is tomorrow evening. We might just pop along and have a look!
And now for a few Pippin photos.
He's difficult to capture sometimes....
|The camera straps are a chewing opportunity...|
|Or he whizzes past so quickly, I miss him (great tail, though!)|
|He can get one ear up .... cute, eh?|
|And he's a great flowerpot stealer...|
|He'll fit his cage perfectly....SOON!!|
|He was chewing the wheelbarrow planter...he was!|
|And he practises being very handsome.|
And tomorrow, it's the 1st of March and Spring is on its way! I never like February much, makes me crave hibernation, but now, I feel ready for the long walks that Pippin will surely need! Just one more injection and a microchip needed.
Hope those of you who have had it up to you know where with snow and wind and rain find a little sunshine coming your way from now on.
Here's to Spring.
