Dedicated to Teresa (teresat) and Jose (mbrito) with appreciation for the warm welcome to their hometown Lisbon on our way to Madeira island.

* Palheiros

Santana in Madeira is located near to the north east coast. It is home to the Palheiros. the unique, traditional house built around an A-frame in a triangle design with a thatched roof.

** The Pride of Madeira

The Pride of Madeira (the purple plants on the right hand side).
scientific name Echium candicans, is an evergreen biennial plant with large blue or purple flower clusters shaped like an inverted cone. It does well in temperate climates with mild winters and is very tolerant of drought conditions. It's a popular ornamental plant due to showy large blossoms and the ease of care. It can be propagated from seeds or cuttings. Generally the Pride of Madeira is an extremely tall plant, often reaching heights of 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 m), and spreading to a width of about 3 feet (0.9 m). It has silvery green foliage with a clump of leaves at its base arranged in a radial pattern. From the base rises a tall woody stalk that is covered in silvery green lance shaped leaves. The leaves are quite long at the bottom, gradually growing shorter as they progress up the stem pointing in all directions. At the top of the stalk, the Pride of Madeira produces an impressively large conical cluster of flowers. This cluster is frequently 12 inches (30.5 cm) long with dozens of individual blossoms. Each small bloom is shaped like a tiny bell with several petals and long stamens emerging from the center. The color of the flowers can vary from deep blue or purple to paler shades; the color often appears darker near the centers of the blossoms and lighter towards the edges.

Very nice capture of this beautiful little house. I wouldn't mind living in it. Love the flowers and plants around it. Good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Tsilla,
Nice presentation to Teresa and José,
Excellent details of this lovely place,
great architecture and point of view.
very well done.

This is a lovely little house, Tsilla.
You captured its surrounding beautifully.

A wonderful architecture with an amazing view, Tsilla!

I like the white facade and the roof of the building, which are well contrasted by the green plants in the FG.
The sharpness and POV are excellent where the blue sky adds mood into the scene.

A great dedication to Teresa and José!

Best wishes,
