I went for one of my rides into the campo yesterday,  I do that whenever I am stressed or frustrated, and it always relaxes me.  At the moment, the Níspero fruit trees are in blossom.  These are actually a pretty high maintenance type of tree, as are the Chirimoya.  With the Níspero, the tree produces huge numbers of flowers witch have to be culled in order to not over burden the tree.  You will see in these photos, that they some bud stems  have indeed been cut away leaving a more manageable amount of fruit for the tree to handle.

You can see in this photo where 2 or three flower stocks have been cut away and only a small stub remains

The smaller trees in this orchard are the N´spero, the others are Chirimoya.

Brrr, what is going on?  The sun tried all day to break through what looked like snow clouds, but it just could not.  Silvery light with lots of shadows is what we got.  Highlights from the day.

Just an open field below  Salobreña on the road to La Caleta.  Each year at this time the Pampas Grass flowers and can be seen  in nearly every open field in the area.  Colours vary from plant to plant, some are snow white, whilst others display beautiful shades of pink, purple and gold.
