Close to my house there is an ancient park pretty big, where a little army of gardeners are constantly working to keep it nice and beautiful with lots of flowers, according to the season. and following the old design of flowerbeds, decorative trimmed hedges and everything else. It’s called La Taconera.
Today they were changing the flower beds for the autumn and it was one of the rare days in which the park was almost bare so I didn’t take any pictures, but I have a photo of some orange tulips from last spring.
The park is located along the city walls, and in the old moats there is a mini zoo with some deers, and all kind of ducks, goose, peacocks and other birds. I love to take a walk thru the park. With its statues, its antique decorations and above all its beautiful flowers, helps me enter in another world, and escape from the noises and the dust of the city and its road traffic.
I consider myself lucky to have such a green space so close.
