This Month’s Blossom

Daisies below the hen house. Unfortunately, eventually, I’m going to need to clear some in order to create a space where I can put lettuce and tomatoes seedlings. However, 6ft daisies are a great cover for wildlife, including hares, and there must be about 2 or 3 acres of them, so I’ll be leaving plenty just standing wild.
These mountains on the edge of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park are covered in flowers right now, and will be for the next couple of months, although the different species will take turns to shine.

Olive and Yellow

The farm is carpeted with yellow flowers. There are such a lot of them, creating such a visual treat, I feel reasonably guilty not knowing what they are. I don’t suppose it matters too much, but I’ll ask someone. Spring is phenomenal for wildflowers, but there’s some spectacle or other all year round. It got to about 24 degrees yesterday, with a navy blue sky, but going into the shade – specifically the house – was like diving into a freshwater pool.
