There is an abundance of the perennial Cravo-das-Areias also commonly known as ‘Thrift’ in our local area. The pretty pompom pink flowers can be enjoyed on the many coastal walks in the Western Algarve or where we live, growing on wild areas at the side of the road, or even on our roundabouts. It flowers from the beginning of February through to May (although my feature photograph was taken in January). The flowers dry on the stems which I notice remain until the following season.

Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?
Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Who will join me ?
