Windmill bouquet

DAY 110 (24 JULY) – Cape honeysuckle (Tecoma Capensis) (Vejer, Spain)

It’s becoming more challenging to find wild plants that are still alive in the intense heat of an Andalusian late July. Here a cape honeysuckle stands alone amid the crispy grasses that surround this old windmill.

It’s native to South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique – but somehow found its way to this southern tip of Spain. No relation to ‘real’ honeysuckle, by the way, in spite of the name.
