The golden riches of the Dehesa are strewn across this vivacious landscape.
This generous trove is natural wealth and one that blossoms for all to share.
It is not possible then to claim ownership of this precious flower, it is a vital component of the ecological commons and belongs to no man.
This burnished bloom remains free and wild, a feral masterpiece whose transient living expression is as brief as it is beautiful.
