The eastern end, including El Pico de La Miel (Honey Peak) which isn't the highest point on the ridge but is the most famous as it rises directly above the Madrid Burgos motorway. It's possible to scramble and rock-hop more or less along the entire ridge.

15 (with catflap). H. A. N. W. E. everyone!

Algete Church on yet another very dull day. Iglesia Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion. One day I might even go in and have a look round.

Rose in the rain

I think this could be rosa Pullman Orient Express 2007, but there are lots that are similar. A very stormy day again with low light levels.

Viewed from the back of the house. My sister's shot. I was still in the Land of Nod!

Garden rose ('Alfred Sisley')

The first garden rose of many. Project 21, April: flowers. Best on large I think.

The path down to Valdemanco

From the slopes of Mondalindo, overlooking the village of Valdemanco, to the slopes of the Sierra de La Cabrera. It hadn't rained for almost a year and the country was as parched as it looks here!

Porthcadjack (H. A. N. W. E. everyone)

Photo of Porthcadjack from the other side of the cove taken on the same day (see entry 3 uploads ago . Samphire and Asparagus Islands, Carvannel Downs. In the distance; North Cliffs, Hell's Mouth, Reskajeage and Godrevy. A millpond of an ocean! Many thanks to you all for your great comments and your yellow stars - much appreciated

I DO WISH THE DELETE BUTTON WAS FAR AWAY FORM THE EDIT BUTTON. APOLOGIES TO ALL THOSE WHO ADDED VERY INTERESTING COMMENTS. :o(( OK; again ... I passed this way half an hour later and the whole lot had been strimmed. The council do this every year, apparently as it is a 'fire risk'. Why they can't wait until after the colourful spring wildflower display completely beats me! TONIGHT I WILL SHOW THE AFTER EFFECT. THOSE OF A SENSITIVE DISPOSITION SHOULD WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW BY WHICH TIME I WILL HAVE DELETED IT (deliberately this time!).

Gnarled olive tree.

South West Peninsula coast Path between Basset Cove and Ralph's Cupboard, Portreath, Cornwall. For Pam. Full screen best, I think. I simply felt like showing it again. It cheers me up! Hope it does the same for you. An addition to Project 21, April: Flowers.

The back of the sports centre needs a lick of pain…

Algete. A mix of municipal buildings, municipal plantings and private flats on the hillside.

Dawn, one Christmas

Taken on Boxing Day morning a year or so ago. A lovely scene to wake up to. And I wouldn't have guessed at the time that a year later I would be living here!

French tamarisk. (best on large)

Here is the Wikipedia entry for the tree that I couldn't name before... Sorry, I tried to translate it into English but it wouldn't let me! I hope you can translate it into your language. If not, let me know and I'll try again. Here is a link in English, kindly provided by Sami

H. A. N. W. E. everyone! Cornish cliffs from Tubby…

I fancied showing this again seeing as I have absolutely no more new Cornwall photos to upload! Photo taken and first posted in 2017. Better on full screen.

HFF everyone!

A tree that appealed to me but my phone couldn't identify it. Any ideas? ANSWER: IT'S THE FRENCH TAMARYSK. Sorry, I can't translate it into English. Hope you can translate it into your own language. Parque de Eva Blanco, Algete. The colourful fence is standard for children's play areas everywhere in Spain.
