Hi, yes it's the Caper flower. Beautiful isn't it? Capparis spinosa.

Best wishes, Brenda

It's Bermuda buttercup, Oxalis pes-caprae. Very common in the spring and such a beautiful lemon colour.

Estamos saliendo de Siete Lagunas por una cuesta que se las trae, me he detenido en numerosas ocasiones y es que la cabeza me va a estallar, supongo que por eso de estar a más de 3.000m de altura. Hace … Seguir leyendo

Have you ever wondered what night time visitors you get in your garden? Well I did, I know we have them, they leave evidence behind, some more so than others! So I set up a camera trap that I’m lucky to have and hope never to have stolen.

How fragile life is

Poppy


On Wednesday we were out in the eastern Sierra Nevada, as I slogged my way up a very wet and hot scree slope to the top I wondered why on earth I was doing this. I had to take a selfie on the summit of the mountain as Richard and Dexter had gone another route climbing up a snow gully and were not at the top when I got … Read the rest
