Alhambra Impressions

A surfeit of pattern, but real harmony. Spaces that are calming and restful. Tranquil courtyards. Icing sugar. Marble and plaster-work like lace. Shadows falling across floors from latticed windows. Vistas of the landscape viewed through delicate arches. the sound of fountains and the smell of jasmine. Kittens playing in the gardens. Palm trees and lavender.
