Autumn flowers

There are some characteristic plants that begin to flower in the autumn, with some already present and others beginning to flower now.

Normally, with the first rains, some plants sprout early, but due to the drought conditions we have experienced lately, some have delayed flowering and are appearing now.  The gallery of pictures, taken by our botanist Leslie Linares, displays some of the most characteristic species that can be found in Gibraltar.
