A happy accident

The mirador

This is the mirador, alias the roof of the blue elephant house, a feature which was created by accident or, if you prefer, by serendipity.

It floats above the olive grove and opposite the bulk of the mountains like the crow’s nest of a ship. You aren’t aware it’s attached to the ground.

It receives the morning sun long before anything else that side of the house.

It would be the perfect place for a romantic proposal.

This is the second blooming of the roses. They’re a little smaller and a little paler than the first time round but still make a contrast to the white balustrade.
