December Flowers of Almuñécar, Spain

The town of Almuñécar, Spain is full of beautiful flowers all year-long.  It is so nice walking through the town and seeing all of the color from the December flowers in the winter.  What a nice treat.

December Flowers of Almuñécar, SpainAlan and I went for a leisurely stroll around town and were overwhelmed with the choices of December flowers to take photos of.   We only covered a few blocks, along the west side of town.  We ventured along San Cristobal beach and weaved our way through the sides streets as well.  A nice surprise was bumping into our friend Jaime too.

Back in the US

Coming from North Carolina we are used to the trees losing their leaves and very few flowers in the winter.  I just can’t get enough of the pops of color and variety of flowers we have here.  So many residents take care to have flowers around their home and the town plants many along the beach.  But there is also quiet the variety that just seems to be natural and wild.

Here are some photos of the beauty we see daily during the month of December.  We aren’t sure of all of their names, so please feel free to comment and help us out.  Do let us know which is your favorite and excuse us if the photos aren’t perfect.  🙂  We do like to take photos are playing around with some settings too.

  1. wonderful reading about your new lives – I think the last bloom on the second row is a plumeria – I’m off to OZ and NZ in February – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

  2. Hi! Coming from the Land of Eternal Winter (ie. Canada) I was CRAZY to discover flowers in bloom all year round here and green grass all year round and green trees and leaves on trees and……….. I also discovered mosquitos and flies all year round, however. That’s not a major problem. In Canada you WISH there would be mosquitos and flies all year round (there aren’t, they all freeze to death by October).

    • Isn’t it great. Yes on the “warm days” over 65’F (LOL) we open the sliding doors for fresh air and get a few flies. A bit of a bother, but I will trade that for the temp any day. I just love all of the flowers. I can’t wait for Spring.

Come on and tell us what you think!
