A short visit to Crete
« on: November 08, 2019, 10:43:00 AM »
Here are a few pics from the end of October/beginning of November
There was an alarming lack of rainfall this season resulting in less flowering species than expected.
Nevertheless some flowers were seen, especially within gorges, where some humidity still existed.

1. + 2. Sternbergia sicula/greuteriana
3. + 4. Cyclamen graecum (I guess) candidum
5. Ranunculus bullatus
