Arico Nuevo revisited in May
On May 17th we did a walk combining Walk 14 in the book ‘Tenerife Nature Walks” with the walk described in this blog on 13th September 2012, starting and ending in the square of Arico Nuevo in South Tenerife. So I will not describe the walk, but just share some of the botanical highlights.
The special feature of the walk this May was the number of magnificent specimens of Roof Houseleek (Aeonium urbicum var. meridionale), all at their best. I think the large number of big flower heads may be down to the exceptionally heavy rains Arico suffered this last winter several times.
