Do You See What I See? – Orange, Orange Everywhere!

I love the colors of Almuñécar, Spain every month seems to have a new delight in store for us.  The entire month of January the streets, homes and hillsides have been sprinkled with orange! Most of it is just eye candy, but sometimes there is an edible treat within your reach.Almuñécar, Spain

Orange Flowers

Walls of Orange - In Southern Spain the winter brings loads of color, especially the color orange. You will see these amazing orange flowers everywhere and oranges too.

There are lovely vines with orange flowers everywhere.  I have no clue what they are, but it can just take your breath away. No matter where you are in town, you will see these flowers.  Many homes are white, so this really makes the vines pop out.

It’s not just about flowers!

Orange trees all over town. Almuñécar, SpainThe best part about walking around town or down any side street you will see orange trees everywhere.   The general rule is, if it falls on the ground it is fair game.  I must say that the trees are pretty light on the oranges that are within arms reach.  Whether you get some of these beauties right from the tree or if you buy them from the market, they make good eats.Picking an orange in Granada
