Preparing for Palm Sunday in Torredembarra!

The priest in the fishervillage of Torredembarra "Baix-a-Mar" asked us if we could provide for some olivebranches and bayleaf-branches for to give to people in the church on Palm Sunday.

 So Antonieta and I went out in the countryside. There we found a farmer who said that we could take as much as we wanted!!

It was great fun! And then we went to my garden to pick som bay leaf and flowers. Just now my Wisteria (Blåregn) is blooming so beautiful.

Then we took it all to the church and Antonieta who has the key opened and we could place it all in som baskets for to use at the sermon on Palm Sunday.

Our friend Rosina also joined!!

Then came the big day and yesterday it was so special to see all the people with "our" branches being blessed in the square in front of the small church!!

The priest here in the fishermans village Baix-a-Mar is from Italy and has only been here 6 months. Padre Giaccomo and Patrik became great friends when Patrik was here for Xmas!!

Well, that was a very nice Palm Sunday. The sun was glittering in the sea and one culd feel the expectation of Easter coming!!
