Beautiful Late Summer Flowers

7 Oct

 The weather has started to cool down here a bit now so it is like Spring again. Every morning we take our dog Rufus for a walk in the “campo” and the flowers are just so amazing at the moment I thought I would share some of the colour & beauty with you..

 As you can see I don’t know what most of them are called but they are just so bright & beautiful right now. The magenta pink fan like flowers are amazing & the white flowers on the palm (Nardos) smell gorgeous a mixture of Jasmin & Honeysuckle. We also collected some of the seed pods in the picture to see if we can grow them even though we don’t know what they are. Even the dead weeds look beautiful…

By the way, I do realise how lucky I am to be able to walk the dog through this stunning countryside. It’s a great way to start the day, you see the seasons change and every day there is something different and wonderful to look at.

    Stunning countryside. You’re in Spain? I’m amazed at how similar the vegetation is to Arizona. I didn’t remember that from visiting Andalucia. Also, what you have identified as a seed pod sure looks like a tomatillo. If you remove the papery pod, there should be a small hard green tomato like veggie. They make wonderful salsa. Thanks for sharing your photos.

      Glad you like the photos, it is beautiful. Today the rains came while I was out walking – different photos altogether but still stunning. Mascara running not a good look though! Will have a look at the seed pod to see if there is anything inside, Thanks.
