Almond Blossoms, Orange, Lemon and Olive Groves

More photos from Andalucia, Spain today.

It was especially delightful to find the almond trees covered with pale pink blossoms.

Orange and lemon groves were plentiful on the drive from Malaga (where we flew into) to our country hotel in Alora.

We enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice every morning and ate some of the sweetest clementines ever!.

A ground cover of yellow flowers was evident in many places, and especially in the orange and lemon grove we decided to photograph in one day.

Of course olive oil is one of the most popular Andalucian products, and we saw olive groves everywhere. This view was seen from the parking lot of our country hotel/B&B.

Love the gnarly and twisted trunks.

The bright green carpet here is barley, used in the brewing of San Miguel beer.


  1. Just the breath of spring I need today!

    1. Glad you enjoyed them Judy. We are getting another dump of snow today :-((
