Bloomers / Bombachos (y Flores)

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

MAYBE IT’S TOO early in the season for sightings of Fuengirola’s fashion bloomers of 2020, so I’ve instead shared a collection of people in last year’s bloomers. If these bloomers aren’t to your liking, some stretches of the Paseo are currently filled with happily blooming tamarind trees — amid the many dead and dying ones (click here). When the tamarind’s are happy (as they so rarely are here), they’re wonders to behold. Today, it’s all about the bloomers.


QUIZÁS ES DEMASIADO temprano en la temporada para los avistamientos de floración de la moda de Fuengirola de 2020, por lo que he compartido una colección de personas en la floración del año pasado. Si estos bloomers no son de su agrado, algunos tramos del Paseo están actualmente llenos de tamarindos felizmente florecientes, en medio de los muchos muertos y moribundos (haz clic aquí). Cuando los tamarindos son felices (ya que rara vez están aquí), es maravilloso contemplarlos. Hoy, todo se trata de los bloomers.

En inglés, la palabra “bloomers” solía referirse a la ropa interior femenina hasta la rodilla. Luego se refirió a los calzoncillos en general. ¿Ahora? Ni siquiera sé si la palabra se usa más de esa manera. Sin embargo, “bloomers” también pueden ser flores en flor.

  1. Oh, those fluffy catkins on the tamarind trees! Do people have allergies to them when they’re blooming like that?

    1. Debra:
      I’m sure they (we) must. You can see them floating everywhere in the wind. Today is especially windy and there are at times clouds of those … and sand. But there’s always something in bloom here to wreak havoc with allergies. The price we pay… willingly.

  2. Well, these pix have me anticipating summer, and it isn’t even bloomin’ spring yet!

    1. Deedles:
      The wind was raging this morning. Sand storms on the beach. But it’s calmed now and currently 76 degrees!

    1. Raybeard:
      Oh, we had those in our backyard when I was a kid. One of the first signs of spring. These aren’t those exactly, but a nice reminder. Dudo and Moose don’t give two shits about pussy willows, however. The return of the swallows is driving them insane.

  3. Re. the bloomers, some people definitely wear ’em better than others.

    We have one of those trees in our garden. They’re beautiful when they’re healthy!

    1. Steve:
      I’ve never seen this particular type of tamarind and was convinced I was being told the wrong name when I asked. Do you have problems with it in your garden, too?

  4. Oh, THOSE bloomers! I at first thought those other bloomers/baggy underwear! lol
    Oh for those summer days now as I watch the blowing snow here…….

    1. Jim:
      It’s been a very strange winter. We have hardly had one. And it’s supposed to be our rainy season. Still hoping for late-season rains.

    1. Bob:
      I agree. Every so often, both kinds of bloomers are well represented.

    1. janiejunebug:
      Was that for the bloomers or the bloomers? Never mind. I know.

  5. Those catkins are quite lovely aren’t they. Any chance you may dive bomb the blooms and show us a macro view of the buds. I am always intrigued with plants offerings. Now how about dive bombing those bloomers….. LOL! Winks!

Please share your thoughts...
