Anthyllis tetraphylla   Bladder Vetch

Anthyllis tetraphylla Anthyllis tetraphylla whole

Retracing our steps on a walk we'd done in Crete five years before, it was surprising how many more species I saw and photographed. This procumbent vetch was in several places at the side of the road and its inflated calyces stood out against the light brown earth.

On a dry river bed near Cortijo Valverde in Andalucia, Spain the following year there were quite a few of these plants in full flower.
