A tree, each month
There is a small autochthonous tree from southern Portugal that brings us a mystery in the fall. It blooms and, at the same time, it has fruits! The delicious strawberries took 10 months to mature and can now be eaten or used to produce a strong kind of brandy - Aguardente de Medronho.
A bird, each month
It's not just the autumnal colors that mark the fall's arrival. The avifauna is enriched with the arrival of Common Chiffchaffs, White Wagtails, more Eurasian Blackcaps and European Robins. The bird we highlight this month increases its presence at this time of the year in the Gulbenkian Garden.
