Flowers, plants and trees in Asturias - Winter

One of the joys of living in Asturias near the coast is the milder winters and year round lush and verdant landscapes. The winter this year has been particularly mild with below average rainfall and less snow in the mountains than usual.

As you walk along the country lanes, mountain paths or river estuaries, it is forever pleasing to see the rich and colourful range of flowers, plants and trees. It always surprises people that there is so much colour at this time of year. The richness of the landscapes are truly beautiful. Here is a short slideshow of just some of the flowers, plants and trees that can be seen during winter in Asturias... and the flowers, for Mums everywhere including my mum. Happy Mother's Day (UK).
