The vast insect populations of the Dehesa are perfectly coincident with this peak flowering.
All around, the air is alive with indescribable beauty of the butterflies and the gentle sussuration of the bees.
There is a delicious somnolence to sound and vision, it is a Gaian caress for soul and body.
This is a full deep ecology in which we are invited to become utterly participant.
