Here are some photos from the Barranco de Las Agüilas and the Barranco de Las Negras.
The vibrant splashes of colour from the pink and white flowers illuminate the countryside and for us herald the arrival of spring.
The almond trees make a stark contrast with the fig trees which are now bare of leaves but starting to bud.
The droning of bees collecting the pollen from the flowers as you walk past a tree is a warming sound of nature.
The first wild flowers of the year are also adding colour to the countryside. The acid yellow of Bermuda buttercups and the bright orange of the little wild marigolds complement the vivid blue of the lavender.
