While other visitors to the Generalife (the Sultana’s Palace) gardens were tutting and huffing at the gardeners who were obviously spoiling their once in a lifetime holiday shot of this most beautiful of courtyards, I on the other hand was enjoying the company and the interest that these very hard working chaps were creating in my own shots. I was imagining that back in the day when these wonderful palaces would have been occupied by the Moors, you probably would have seen the gardens busy with workers maintaining them. To me then, these guys were an echo of the those times, and I actually felt quite privileged to be witness to their sheer dedication and pride in keeping these treasures pruned, trimmed and weed free. Also because I once was a keen gardener, so I was very appreciative of all the hard work involved, just for my enjoyment, and the enjoyment of all the other ungrateful herberts surrounding me. Good job muchachos!
