Here are some photos taken yesterday when we walked along the Barranco de las Agüillas in Las Negras.
The countryside around us is still looking beautiful with the spring flowers in profusion, fig trees in full leaf and the hillsides covered in greenery.
The weather has been warm and sunny and is set fine for the rest of the week so visitors here for Semana Santa will be able to enjoy the countryside of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata as its best.
The thistles are coming into flower. Here is an interesting photo of two beetles investigating an intense yellow flower.
Poppies and yellow daisies form colourful groups along the banks of the barranco.
In a few weeks all this vegetation will have dried out and the countryside will take on its parched, summer hues.
Enjoy it now!
