Madrid Province (or Comunidad de Madrid, to use its correct name!).

Fresno de Torote. A nearby village to Algete where I now live. Spring 11 years ago.
Perhaps better on full screen.
I tried adding this to the group 'Clouds', which I joined recently but the group has dissapeared from my drop down list. Any ideas why, anyone?

What a lovely view, Andy. I just love the red poppies in amongst the greenery. I don't understand why we don't have these red poppies growing wild like this over here.

Thank you, Jenny.
I don't know the answer except to say I have occasionally seen spring wildflower meadows in the UK, just like this, but I agree they are becoming less and less common, sadly.

Thank you, Jaap! In Panoramio days, I was able to use a free editing facility that had far more options than subsequent free editing services so I could crop photos any way I liked. I can no longer do this!

Thank you, Reinhard!
When I took this shot 11 years ago, I actually had the full time use of my niece's car for a year while she was in Florence on an Erasmus course. I have realised that this was the last time I drove regularly. Now I can't get a Spanish or British driving licence (I need both) thanks to the horror that is Brexit! And my health and eyesight have deteriorated since Covid so I can't pass a test now in either country anyway!. GRRR!
