I missed roses at their peak this year but just caught these stragglers in time! H. A. N. W. E. everybody!

A nice open space with plenty of greenery. Like the roses.

Thank you, Jean. I like the umbrella pines here!
And no people!
There never are.
I think it's a legacy of Franco times. These are 'Official Government Grounds' and even though open to the public, they lie right beside govt buildings. Far too risky to go strolling nonchallantly there!!

The trees are lovely and I too would appreciate the lack of people. Sad if their absence is due to memories of Franco.

A nice perspective Andy. Reading you comment to Jean reminds me that the first time I visited Spain was in 1970 and Franco was in power. A very different country now! Some of the staff in the hotel were very young and they all lived in an apartment block next door.
Hope you have a good and safe weekend.

Thank you, Rosa. Still many relics from those darys, more in the psyche of the Spanish than anything physical or even political.

Thank you, Keith!
Strange thing is they (people, not roses) seem to want to squeeze together in the least safe places but shun safe places such as this. I fail to comprehend my fellow man (and woman) at the best of times!
Is there actually a collective death wish do you think? The result of decades of boredom perhaps?

Well at least you're able to see them now, Andy - if you had gone out a few weeks ago, you might not be around to see them now!! Please take care of yourself.
