Follow

Cork

…all the way to the cork tree…

Flowers

Ferdinand the Bull

Today is St Ferdinand’s day, in honour of a bellicose and war-like 13th century king in what is now Spain.  It is an ironic name for our favourite Spanish bull who refused to fight, preferring to sit under a cork tree and smell flowers…!

  1. I think there should be more of those kinds of bulls in the world today. It’s nice to stop and enjoy the scent of flowers instead of fighting.
