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.

Local Painter Manuel Moral Mozas - Olive Groves in Jaen

I had to do a double take when I just came across this painting by Manuel Moral Mozas- it could be my house. I'd not heard of him before but apparently he has lots of works, even a gallery named after him in the Naif Art Museum.

Read more about him and the museum Manuel Moral Room  in the Museo Internacional de Arte Naïf in Jaen city which also houses the Arab Baths. I shall be paying another visit there when I can walk the streets again.
