Good nectar sources during the cold days.



And other unknown winter flower. If you can help me...

Very nice pictures.
Are you in Cadiz, Spain or someplace else?

Abejaruco, those are magnificent flowers.  I am going to copy the picture and put it into the horticultural forum that I belong to in the flower identification section.  I will see if I can get a definition of the species for you.  That pink flower is absolutely astounding, your photography is wonderful and thanks again for taking us into the glimpse of the flora of your part of the world.  Greatest of days.  Cindi

Yes, I am in Cádiz. Cadiz is province capital and there are any villages around, like Jerez (where the Brandy, brave bulls and horses) or my village (where my oranges and my honey :))
