A much rarer plant is this Sarcocapnos eneaphylla (the Spanish call it virgin’s slippers) which we have seen growing in fissures on large boulders opposite the Batteria de San Ramon near the same path.
By this path, where it descends down to Cala del Cuervo, a number of fan-lipped orchids are in flower.
I discovered this yellow linaria along the Rambla de Las Negras.
Also along this rambla there are groups of little mirror orchids.
The best location I have come across for orchids, though, is the path between Los Albericoques and Las Presillas. Here, yesterday, I found this pretty group of sawfly orchids.
Most impressive of all were these five large Barlia robertiana orchids.
On this walk, we turned back when we reached the Cortijo de Las Presillas Altas, but not before we spoke the the goats in their corral, many of which had kids.
