The Alentejo between Terena & Monsaraz

The countryside was exquisite – flowers everywhere in shades of pink, yellow, purples, and whites tinged with colour, and with a wonderful sweetness in the air. Cork oaks and olive trees on grassy hillsides and goats, cattle and sheep – I could have spent hours here with my camera – and I would love to add the scent of the flowers to this post!
