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.

Finally I got to visit Bilbao. I´d driven pretty near, got the ferry back to there once but had never stayed in the city. Last week I flew from Malaga to Bilbao for a two night, three (ish) day trip and it only happened because I won the trip via an Instagram giveaway. 

Bilbao not so easy to get to within Spain, most flights I looked at were not direct, which meant going via Barcelona, from my nearest airport Granada there is one direct flight a week -  why would I fly to Barcelona and not stay there? Bilbao was on the very long term (if I still have long term) drive to northern Spain trip plan. If you get the chance go - with an umbrella. It´s an easy, flat city with bus, tram, metro and train station right in the centre. I´ll be going back!
