    A wee bit of cloud as you can see but nevertheless sunny. :thumb:

    The flowers are growing wild and we wondered what they are, any idea??? :Cool:

    Fancy going somewhere sunny when you can only recognise flowers that grow in wet, cold places :Doh::Laughing:

    Its a weed.

    With half the petals open and the other half closed, its a sure sign of a storm:thumb:

    Be very careful, I was once witness to motorhomes and tents being washed off of a Spanish hillside. Not a pretty sight and it all happened so quick.:rain:

    Do they have aloes over there - 'cause that is what the flower reminds me of.

    Lovely pics as always! :Cool:

    Depending on height either Common Asphodel (tall 0.6-1.5m) or Hollow stemmed Asphodel (tp 0.75m)

    Both very common in Almeria and other rocky arid areas.
