More Flowers

Yellow was the dominant colour among the flowers opening around Benidorm.  I mentioned the Scorpion Vetch yesterday, but that was just one of many.
Many smaller plants were to be found hugging the rocks, including a rather prickly customer called Pallenis spinosa.  The ring of thorny bracts around the flower head gives the plant it's name 'spinosa'.
Smaller still were the Helianthemum syriacum lifting their faces towards the sun.
Showier than all these had to be the Sea Aster (Astericus maritimus) flowers.  Growing in all the crannies of the rocks they stole the show among the yellow flowers.
