The Gardens of Spain

Today, I’m sharing some photos of the flora I saw in Madrid and Barcelona. The climate in Spain is most similar to (of the places I’m familiar with) California. Highs in the 60s during the day, but down into the 40s at night. One thing I found surprising was the number of deciduous trees in Madrid. The parks at this time of year looked dead. As we took the train from Madrid to Barcelona, the scenery got progressively greener, as most trees in Barcelona are evergreen.
