Grey-Green

I mentioned the delightful little Rumex plant yesterday and the fact that there seemed to be very few native, wild flowers to be found.  The most abundant plants were, as usual in these places, the Euphorbias.  On our walk up the Montana Guaza we encountered lots of cactus-like members of this large family, especially the Euphorbia canariensis.
They added a little bit of green amid the dull grey of the rocky landscape.  The 'greyness' was exacerbated by the dull weather we had that day.
As we reached the furthest point of our walk and while dodging the rain drops which were falling by that time, we got the view we were hoping for, looking East towards Las Galletas and the distant airport out of sight between the hills.
