wild orchid I love to garden and I'm a sucker for a pretty flower. So walking the Via de la Plata in Spring can be distracting. I've included pictures of some of the flowers I saw on the El Camino. Also, check out the pictures from the day I spent at the Jardin Botanica in Madrid and my gardening site.
boxwood My one complaint about the Jardin Botanica - There were acres and acres of flowers and trees all meticulously arranged around boxwood borders. Miles of boxwood. And no one thought to put in a boxwood labyrinth? It would have been gorgeous and truly a spiritual experience to walk through. Obviously, no one asked me for advice in designing the garden.
