Our holiday to Fuertaventura, would not be complete without a visit to the hills surrounding Betancuria.
And I had to wait til the last day to do it.
It wasn`t as windy as the last time we went .... I remember that time, being rather sorry to have worn my summer dress, seeing as most of my flower shots were quite low. A little draughty.
This time I was ready.
I think I chose my colour palette quite well.
I explored the area around Mirador Morro Velosa.
Absolutely fascinating ..... for not knowing what you would find ..... and also for the novelty of seeing flowering plants.
I haven`t done much about identifying them this time round but I know roughly the family.
This photo does not do this tiny bulb justice.
It was a startling purple.
Echium and calendula.
This striking lichen reminded me of an exotic sea anemone.
The other two waited most patiently for me.
Then it was off to Betancuria.
More in my next blog entry.
