Galgos del Sol is dedicated to every galgo espanol; those who made it and sadly those who didn’t.

It’s Spring!

I love this time of year here!

The temperature is distinctly higher. The landscape is verdant, and sprinkled with the colours of wild flowers. And, there are myriad butterflies. Not to mention, the birds in song and the bleat of newborn lambs. Just gorgeous!

We’ve all been enjoying the countryside at its best: with lots of walking and even a little caving!

And for our own little corner, we are adding some fruit trees, and, of course, a palm!
