Yesterday morning we visited the Botanical Gardens at Rodalquilar. Although only ten minutes drive away, it seems a while since we last went there and we were quite shocked at how arid the gardens are looking after having had so little rain this year. The jacaranda trees are in flower, though, and they add a splash of colour together with the pomegranate trees which are also in blossom.
Bees were buzzing around the cactus flowers.
The light and the shade cast by the strong sun over the palms and cacti produce interesting photographic compositions.
