Country roads in Madrid

This is a summer sundown South of Madrid, with the Jarama valley on the distance.

Lots of people find this landscape awful.

In spring it is all full of flowers almost like a garden, but the flowers don’t last, because as from May on the rains are erratic and create problems but don’t do much good anymore.

And then, from July on, only the thistles and genista, rosemary and thyme survive. Sometimes a whole hillside smells of thyme.
