And here are a few of the plants we saw:

A carob tree with green pods, which will ripen by the autumn:

Field marigold (Calendula arvensis), which is plentiful now:

An unidentified yellow flower, maybe some kind of crepis?:

A small sedum (we haven't seen many as it has been very dry lately):

And two bushes coming into flower - Sarcopoterium spinosum (Thorny burnet) and Euphorbia acanthothamnos (Spiny spurge)
