A mushroom in my garden.

With the recent rains that have fallen, and humidity that has been generated in my garden, this mushroom has emerged.
The land on which it is the mushroom, is on the ground and there are small stones. Well, even so, the mushroom is out. In the photo you can see the small stones on top of the mushroom.
I do not know if it will be edible, but just in case I do not eat it.

Follow the arrow

At the same site as yesterday, the Torre de la Horadada, is this sign painted on the floor, and the signal that it remains upright. Under their direction, you can continue straight ahead or turn right. The problem is that if you continue straight you can fall to the beach. Things that make the signals.

In Murcia there are several fountains where you can see how man can control the water.

The Arch of Sto. Domingo

This arch joins Palace Almodovar (XVII Century) and the Church of Santo Domingo (XVIII Century). By then, it was a zone of passage of the palace to the church where the noble could go to hear Mass without leaving his palace, to his box in the church. Privileges which was then the nobility, as they used to be those that encouraged this type of construction.

Grandparents. Undoubtedly, the voice of experience, and that today we have almost removed from our lives and we use as the babysitter. However, the work they do caring for grandchildren do good pleasure, no doubt. Grandparents are a very important pillar of society and on which we should support the wisdom of seeking more experience in life.

Theme Day: Lines

Although I have not been able to enroll in the theme of the day (subject should be renamed the month), here I leave you my proposal for the theme of the day: lines.
This fence surrounds the garden of Floridablanca.
The garden is closed at night, because in the past was used to those hours at night by prostitutes and thugs. To avoid this, is closed every night from 23:00 to 7:00.
