15 Spanish Wildflowers

By LynneJoyce  
Yet another post of images from Spain because I'm avoiding packing again! Editing these images has provided a wonderful distraction so I thought I'd post them before we go. Oh if only there were a packing service that you could pay for I'd be a much happier bunny.

Here we have a selection of wildflower images taken on previous trips. Some of them like V's 1, 5 & 14 are teeny weeny things, others like the glorious, blowsy poppy in V's 2 & 10 and that pink thingy that grows out of walls everywhere (V15) much larger. V's 8 & 9 have the benefit of added bugs.

No vote chasing this time as that would be quite unfair as this is just another avoidance exercise. Anyway, enough of me dribbling on. Thank you for looking and I hope that you like at least some of them.

I suppose I'm going to have to find something else to distract me now!

What a superb set of shots Lynne, V9 large is excellent. They all deserve an upload of their own.
Had there been voting I could see these getting an excellent response. (Could Garath not do the packing for you)? Enjoy your holiday and do not work too hard in the Marmalade dept.

What an excellent set Lynne. V9 large is superb. If you had allowed voting I bet there would have been a cracking response. Do not work too hard in the marmalade dept. (Why not let Garath do the packing?) Have a great holiday.

A selection of beautiful images Lynne - all so well presented too! If I did have to choose a favourite, it would be v1. I sympathise about packing - I hate it too... pour yourself a glass of wine and get stuck in!! SmileSmile and que tengas una buena vacacion!

Stop looking for distractions Lynne,and hoping Garrath will finish all the packing. I am surprised there is no packing company though.When I get on the Apprentice I will put my idea to Alan Sugar to start my own company.He better not try and sack me though.If he thinks I am like the rest of these wimps who burst into tears and walk out the door,he will be in for a shock.I just won't take that lying down.I got the chance to appear on Big Brother but I turned that one down.If anyone thinks I am going to show them what I get up to 24/7 then they have another think coming.Stricly Come Dancing is one that I am waiting word on.I can't dance at all but it will be interesting having these good looking girl dancers holding me tight and upright all the time.As for that Celebrity Jungle one,forget that.My stomach suffers enough with my wifes cooking without all these bugs and spiders they eat.And don't tell me I will not get on as I am not a Celebrity.I never know half of them on it anyway.Still,this time next year everyone will know my name when I have my own multi million pound packing company.It does sound hard work though,so I will probably sell it lock stock and barrel to Alan Sugar !!

What a set of beauties Lynne. Love all those poppies and V1 is my favourite. Of course, your framing (which I still haven't mastered) just sets them off.
Have been incredibly busy recently, so will catch up soon on others I have missed. How is the work on the house going?
