This is a quite widespread pest in all Mediterranean pine forests. Although also affects cedars and firs.
The pest in question, is a voracious leaf dining.
I remember when I was a child, the playgrounds were not as protected as now. Then the floor was dirt, the slides were made of iron, which in the winter could not be used because they were very cold, and in summer, burned. Swings were made of iron, or were made of used tires.
And we are still alive.
Today was a day of high winds and storms in Spain, including Murcia. This strong atmospheric phenomenon is known by meteorologists as explosive cyclogenesis.
In the end it has cleared and the sun came out. Although several deaths have occurred in the Region of Murcia, a wall collapsed due to strong winds.
The Region of Murcia is a major world producer of all kinds of candies, sweets, lollipops.
Companies like Caramelos Cerdan (s. 1914), Vidal Golosinas (s. 1963), and Golosinas Fini (s.1970's), are world leaders in their sector, and are from the Region of Murcia.
In the picture, a new candy store opened by the company Fini in a very central location of Murcia: between Romea Square and the Santo Domingo Square.
This cafe is located between Romea Theater square, and Santo Domingo square, near the Arc of Santo Domingo, is there since the 80s. In 2011, it was an impressive reform.
It's a good place for coffee, tapas. I recommend visiting it, at least for its architecture (designed by an acquaintance of mine). Here you can see photos inside.
While most of Spain is with rain, snow, winter temperatures (below zero), here in Murcia, we reached up to 20 Celsius degrees (during the day, although during night decreases to 5 Celsius degrees).
In the picture, pigeons taking a winter sunbathing, along the Segura river.
This Theme Day of the CytyDailyPhoto community is really a looking at the past. Well a look at how we have grown taking pictures. I think if I changed something is in the frames, and find the details that go undetected.
Photos: The above is a picture of a detail from the Iron Bridge of Murcia (November 2012). Below, the entire Iron Bridge (November 2010).
A poor quality photo taken with a mobile phone. I will return to this place to take a better picture with my camera.
This is not the film Rear Window (here you can see the trailer from the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock's film). It is a large window of a mega gym.
The City of Murcia is promoting the candidacy to get the statement of the Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO of the Mountains and Country of Murcia (Sierras y Campo de Murcia).
The proposal of the Biosphere Reserve of the Mountains and Country of Murcia covers an area of 57,200 hectares.
88.5% of the land belongs to the municipality of Murcia, 7.5% to Alhama de Murcia and 4% to Fuente Alamo.
This area is noted for its high importance for the conservation of biodiversity: here are large populations of protected flora and hosts most known density of pairs of eagle owl (Bubo bubo) and is one of the largest areas of large scattering Mediterranean raptors.
New Year's Eve, there are many parties prepared at home, private, or public, such as it is done every year at the Santo Domingo square. Orchestra, lucky grapes, cotilllón, and many desire to have fun, and totally free.

Well, although this year there is not a Theme Day for January, I have wanted to continue the tradition of which I have taken part in the last (almost) five years. So far, the first day of the year was used to do a retrospective of the previous year in order to choose the picture the best we like about our own blog.
The picture I have chosen is the one that I published to celebrate Mother's Day in May 2012.

Siguiendo la corriente de la comunidad CityDailyPhoto, me he propuesto dejar en este blog fotos de Murcia, como forma de mostrar al mundo qué joya de ciudad y de provincia tenemos. Agradecer al creador de ParisDailyPhoto su gran idea de mostrar la ciudad de uno mismo desde otro punto de vista.
