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 - Castillo de Burgalimar or Bury al Hammam in Baños de la Encina, Jaén

Baños de la Encina has long been a favourite of mine, a charming little town filled with  an amazingly intact tenth century castle, sandstone mansions and more surprises for family and friends. Over the years it has ´matured´ into itself, becoming accepted into the association of Spain´s Most Beautiful Towns and learning how to promote its splendour. The addition of great place to eat means its become a place to linger.
