Nature’s garden

Walking between Puerto de Vega and Playa de Frejulfe, we were treated to a breathtakingly sumptuous array of wild flowers.

Blankets of pastel pink thrift and snowy sea campion drifted across the clifftops and stitched between them were skeins and spots of so many other plants, creating a rich embroidery where even the mundane shone to full effect. What a wonderful floral fabric of colour and scent, texture and form and all set against that stunning blue-drenched backdrop of sky and sea.

This is coastal Asturias it its best; we might not have the scope for a sweeping flower garden at home but who needs one when we have such natural beauty on our doorstep? 🙂

  1. Oh. I’m speechless. Why bother with a flower garden, as you say? The pinky hyacinth-like ones are rather special, aren’t they?

    1. Well, I certainly couldn’t create anything more beautiful if I tried! I have to admit there were a few plants there I didn’t recognise so one of the reasons for all the photos is the need to sit down and do some detective work. Not that it matters a bit what they are, I’m happy just to enjoy them!

  2. Stunning photos. Just in the week where I’ve read an article about how wild flowers are disappearing in Britain due to nitrogen pollution and mismanagement. Around here, the wild flowers are alive and well too, but that simply shows the low population density and traffic levels…

    1. Yes, it’s all connected, isn’t it? The incessant verge cutting obsession was a huge bugbear of mine in the UK, the wildflowers don’t stand a chance. Needless to say, the insect and birdlife on our walks were as stunning as the flowers – thank goodness for wild places!
