Fragile blooms

In June this year I spent two weeks working at a yoga retreat near Granada, Spain. The property was on top of a dry, dusty hilltop. You could look over the neighbouring hillsides – they were all covered in olive trees, neatly planted in rows up and down, left and right.

The ground here was so rocky and scrabbly it took me a while to notice that there was in fact a lot of colour and variety going on below knee level! I went for a walk one morning and picked this handful of tiny little blooms and grasses. They were all completely dried out by months of sun and wind, so were really fragile. I wish I had a pro camera to get in closer on the detail – they were very intricate.
