Monday Morning Photo - Wisteria Time in Andalucia

How quickly spring comes around after the short winter here in the Sierra Sur de Jaén. After lots of very much needed rain we´re back to the normal cloudless blue.  My garden is shooting incredbily with the moisture and now sunshine. And my beautiful wisteria flowers grandly albeit it short-lived. The big black carpenter bees love it. Each flowering season reminds me of the Botanical Gardens in Malaga and the ´tunnel´ of wisteria that I haven´t yet caught in bloom. April is a good time to plan to go if it´s on your list.  Here´s the botanical garden link La Concepción Botanical Gardens. And a sneaky peak at the wisteria. See the Monday Morning Photos list.

It´s Big Green Preying Mantis Season

It´s preying mantis season again, going from one type to anthor. We´ve just had the smaller ones the colour of dried grasses and now it´s the large bright green ones.

Yesterday this fellow was inside the front door curtain, I popped him on a plant and got some not very good photos. This morning there was one without a head outside the back door. Poor chap. We know what he´d been doing.

They are just so amazing,the head rolls around on its neck to look at you with a feeling that they´re going to pounch.

I think Bug´s Life did its take off of them excellently.
