Married to the lovely Geoffrey, my soulmate. I have two fantastic big kids,both married, whom I love and miss every day I'm not with them, but I know they're living and loving their lives and we make up for time when we get together.I now have three granddaughters too...
As we have rather unsettled weather at the moment, I thought I would share some of the photograghs of the flowers that are in bloom here. Botanically Crete is very important.It has approximately 1800 species of plants, of which 200 of those are endemic. Firstly, we have Mandrake, which has been known throughout history for it's medicinal and mythical properties. The root is shaped like a human being and the legend says if you pull it from the ground you may hear it scream. It is said to be one of the classic witchs' plants. It is a hallucinate.
These are Milky Orchid (Orchis Lactea). They are about 20cms. in height, quite common and very beautiful.
And here as far as the eye can see is Greek Chamomile. Truly a wonderful sight and perfume.
