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.

Monday Morning Photo - Olive Oil Mill, Almazara La Erilla

Almazara La Erillas, housed in a Nasrid building dating back to the 12th - 14th century, is one of the oldest olive oil mills in the country. A fascinating visit in the charming town of Nigúelas in the Lecrin Valley, halfway between Granada´s city and coast.

Where to stay? The lovely, historical Rural Hotel La Alqueria de los Lentos just on the edge of town. Read about my stay at the Alqueria de los Lentos.
