Madeira photos

Here's a link to the photos from my recent trip to Madeira best viewed as a full screen slideshow.
My previous visits have been in our winter months but on this May trip I saw the landscape in all it's glory with the summer flowers in bloom and plots full of vegetables.
Fabulous weather for the whole trip.No rain but the levadas come into their own to irrigate the cultivated land.

Love the photos and stunning scenery,I take it the Levedas are a kind of man made iregation system? Looks fascinating!
