Flora&Fauna Spanish countryside

Afternoon walk.

unknownflowerWe took the podenco for a walk this afternoon, John usually takes him, but we went on a slightly longer route. We saw this pink flower, they occasionally grow in the garden, I think it is a type of orchid.


These cistanche phelipaea  cistanchephelipaeaare in flower at present.





LimariaarboclocWe went down to the Arroyo Aceituno and along another rambla to meet up with the tarmac road. The view to the north with Limaria in the background,  the image does show the Arboleas tower.  Also a ruin with agave stalks. We followed the road towards the bridge crossing the Arroyo again ruinagavemar2011and then into Los Peraltas, where we met our amigo Diego, who invited us to pick some of his oranges sometime.



GlauciumcorniculatumThese flowers Glaucium corniculatum. We continued to the main road, to home, a walk of about an hour. We were mostly protected from the wind, it was only on the way home, it felt a bit breezy. With a bit of research, the red flower is commonly known as blackspot hornpoppy.

One reply on “Afternoon walk.”

That was a good long walk on a chilly afternoon. Except for the buds, the red flowers look like poppies. perhaps they are related.
