Classic Quinta near Lagos
Self catering holiday rental villa with seaview and privacy, Western Algarve, Portugal

The main terrace after a rainy night in October, minutes after sunrise. Potted palms differ from year to year as more mature plants get planted in the ground and younger ones take their place. A recent addition, likely to be living on the terrace for some years, is Chamaerops humilis cerifera (middle), a lovely mini fan palm with blueish leaves and cherry like fruits.
