Looking out to Bormla


You know your in the Mediterranean when.... you park the car next to a rubble wall and find an abundance of grapes, a few paces away an overgrown wild fig tree heavy with fruit.

Views of the three cities,  a 15 min walk from where we live and an area which I am increasingly growing more fond of. The top left picture was taken while picking my son up from his art class, this past weekend they were drawing and painting in an old building built by the knights in the 16th century (a really beautiful, but sadly mostly closed up and locked away building) the children were very lucky to have been able to use the space and to have gotten the chance to gaze out the windows and enjoy for themselves the harbours below (Birgu from one side and Bormla from the other).

  1. What a beautiful surprise that must be. Are you ever tempted to enjoy a fig or grape right off the vine/tree?

  2. Oh! These are beautiful! How lucky yes to have such an incredible scenery for the children (and for you!). So summer is nearing and I wish you all the best. Get some rest from school(s). It will be fun I am certain! Many kisses.

  4. I hope you picked some of the figs. Yummy! I love to eat them on pizza with proscuitto, goat cheese, spinach, and carmelized onions. Delish1
