We’re just back from a week at the beautiful Finca el Cerrillo on a guided walking holiday with Headwater, and whilst I hoped there might be some wild flowers to admire, I had no idea of the beauty of the Finca’s own gardens or the sheer scale of the wild flowers waiting for me.
Asphodel (both flowers and extraordinary seed heads)
Orchids – Mirror Orchid
and this beautiful little toadflax.
I assure you there are many more photos, but I’ll leave it there. I would just urge you to go to this stunning area of Andulucia, north east of Malaga, and see them for yourself.
With enormous thanks to Sue and Gordon for being such great hosts at Finca el Cerrillo, and thanks also to our very knowledgeable and eagle eyed guide Jenny.
And thanks also to Gail, at Clay and Limestone, who hosts a monthly Wildflower Wednesday meme, which I’ve linked this post to. Thanks Gail!
