March is accompanied by many spring flowers, the number of species growing throughout the month. Many can be seen adorning roadsides, pastures, arable field edges, mountainsides etc. Some of the larger bushes are obvious from a vehicle but other, smaller plants will remain hidden until you walk about if they are in singles or are occasionally seen in swathes carpeting orchards.

Hi all, Sue has written a great colour coded flowers in March article at the Grazalema Guide

A point to note is that she has finally decided on the classification of those awkward yellow daffodils! (Only three years to get there :) )

Well done Sue, great colours. (I wonder if I'll be brave enough to mention Trumpet gentian species to Tree when/if we're in the Picos together  >:D)

Thanks Lisa and Tony,
I divided them into colours as my aim is to keep adding more through the month of March as and when I have time, my list for last year covers 40 species, although that could get to be a very long page  :speechless:
Thinking of visiting the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema in Andalucia?
