Tulip Dance

The tree to the right of the pomegranate is a Ceratonia siliqua, commonly known as the Carob tree, or Algarrobo in Spanish. Created by Christine Lomer and Nick Brown, the informal garden featured many natural plants, herbs and wildflowers as well as irises, tulips, daffodils and roses. It was built on ancient terraces in the mountainous Sierra Bernia region of the Costa Blanca. The late evening light made the tulips dance. I visited it two or three times a week because it was an inspirational, a magical place, always changing, always something new to see and photograph.

Footnote :

In 2017 Christine and Nick left Spain, and the last time I went to look, the garden was a dust bowl.

The photo below is of the iris maze in the same garden, taken in 2014.
