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.

Best Beaches in Spain

Love´em or hate´em TripAdvisor has a huge audience and some note has to be taken of the fact that so many people vote for their lists. Spain has two beaches on the TripAdvisor 2013 Top 35 Beaches in the World list.

Having not been to either and more of a Natural Park than a beach fan, it doesn´t mean I wouldn´t pop over to these two like a shot, time permitting.

Spain´s Best Beaches as voted on TripAdvisor are:

Playa de las Catedrales in Ribadeo on the Asturias/Galicia border on the northern coastline

Sixth on the list - Tripadvisor comment -
The beach itself is gorgeous, but just the view of the Atlantic from the top of the rocks makes one dizzy.

Playa de ses Illetes in Formentera, one of the Balearic Islands

Twelfth on the list - Tripadvisor comment -
You have the sea on both sides, which makes it unique. The views are amazing. The water is crystal clear.
