This morning I spotted my first wild gladiolus of the year near my house.
Also, here is another photo of the sawfly orchid I found this week. It seems topical to talk about flora as today Professors Jim Ross and Stephen Jury have arrived with their botany students for their annual field trip to Las Negras. We helped them organise their first trip about 25 years ago and they have come here every year since.
Las Hortichuelas was looking pretty today with fields of poppies providing a colourful foreground to the traditional village houses.
