    The first one shows the developing fruits of Cistus salviifolius. The other one might be an Anchusa, but not much detail is shown.

    Thank you Axel - on a larger file size of the Anchusa pic, it's a match.

    Hi,

    agree with Cistus salvifolius, but from your photo, I think that the second could be Nonea vesicaria - a common roadside plant in the part of Alentejo where you were.

    Can i recommend that you look at the excellent website on the Portuguese flora 'Flora on': http://www.flora-on.pt/

    (... slightly biased recommendation as i am a contributor)

    boa sorte
    Brian

    That's a wonderful website, easy to use even with no knowledge of Portuguese (well, I'll send you a question or two). A screenful at a time of good-sized clear photos, organized by family, with some interactive key capability.

    Obrigado, Brian - very happy to see that web site. Agree with the Nonea - can see it when I zoom in more on a larger file size. Portugal - all of it - was wonderful!
