Volcanos & Echiums

At the base of the Teide Volcano
I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that my holiday photos have come to an end.
There are two albums on garden.ie - one from the Botanic Gardens and one of other Tenerife Flora.
The second album includes photos from Mount Teide. We visited Volcanic Mount Teide on the basis of photos I had seen of giant pink and blue echiums flowering majestically against black rock and blue sky. The echiums were not in flower when we were there but their architectural skeletons were still impressive.
Although we came for the flora, we had a wonderful time regardless at the top of the mountain, where the only plant I spotted was a single scrubby Argyranthemum teneriffae. So enjoy the photos and for those who want to see pics from the barren top of the mountain, join me on FB.
