We have them all over the mountain near us, and they are quite the architectural marvels. Though I think that in a years time, we won't have any at all. The generalitat has decided to not try to do anything about it, they are not native, and the cost of attempting to save them would be very high, I am assuming. So, they are dying all over the mountain. It is a little sad to see. It's good they don't know what's coming anyway, cause they cannot escape it.
On a brighter note, the moon these days has been utterly spectacular!!!! Have you had a look?
