The flowers of Ibiza
Imagine seeing Ibiza from 40 cm, up, close & personal!
Immerse yourself in a world of fragrances.
Those who live in Ibiza know that from March to late May the island is covered with an exquisite array of vibrant colors! The scent of the wild flowers fills the streets, roads and fields. Even the roundabouts of the city emit spicy fragrances. But it’s just by getting lost in the countryside that these amazing colours and aromas invade our hearts and takeover our senses.
Veronica and I got lost through the roads of the north.
For every flower we found, I just had to stop and observe, and look at life from their perspective!
The stillness of nature is only apparent. Ibiza flowers live and breath overlooking extraordinary landscapes; they grow and interact with their surrounding environment, unaware of distracted passing traffic of cars and people walking by.
The peace is total and the happiness is contagious.
Small purple flowers alternate with yellow buds, next to the scented Bougainvillea climbing the walls of the local farms.
A butterfly leads us to the Aster flower and then we dive into a sea of Poppies, Fennel, Wild Thyme flowers, Genistas and other delightful wonders!
An infinite wealth of aromas and beneficial properties! For example, we find the Prickly Pear, a precious gift from nature, with its delicious fruits and vast medicinal qualities.
I blow on a Dandelion and express my desire that this land continues being loved, preserved and respected by all who shall come and walk across their path.
Find it by driving & walking around the fields of Ibiza without Google Maps.
