How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Big Thanks to the 2 readers who purchased Windscribe Pro VPN subscriptions in January using my provided link!!

New florist in El Morche: A new florist shop has opened in El Morche. Going from Torrox Costa it is on the right – not quite as far as the church. You can’t miss it as he has a big display of lovely orchids in the window. He has a selection of lovely house plants, some of them are unusual and I haven’t seen them in other florists. Some outdoor plants. Different varieties of orchids that you don’t usually see. Some samples of beautiful flower arrangements. A selection of plant pots, plant food etc. All at reasonable prices. Nice owner who has some English.
Let’s support his new business venture, it’s a great addition to this area, and if we don’t use it – we’ll lose it!

Scotland is taking steps toward (another) independence vote: Scotland is already taking steps to hold a referendum on independence and believes it is a matter of when rather than if the country separates from the rest of Britain, Scotland’s First Minister said on Monday.
In a referendum in 2014, Scots voted by 55% to stay in the United Kingdom. But independence supporters say Britain’s departure from the EU, which most Scots voted against in the 2016 Brexit referendum, means the situation has changed.


Torremolinos holds “Colours for peace” race on the Costa del Sol: The Torremolinos pine forests will once again become a colourful circuit to host this Saturday, February 15, the third edition of the Family Race ‘Colores para la Paz, a sporting, supportive and non-competitive event, where funds raised will go to the young people of the Parish of Santa María del Mar. The uniqueness of the race is the coloured powders that will be thrown into the air along the route, located at strategic points, dousing the participants in a shower of colour which will make it an unforgettable day full of fun spent with family and friends.
