Thanks for that information Paul,

It just goes to show that looks can be deceiving, but I've got plenty space so I will keep my eye open in the gardens centres when I'm over in May.

I now know who to contact with any plant problems I have!

We saw this amazing yellow tree in January. There are a couple near the bridge opp Elena Stella.

Going back to JohnJ's post re the Rick Stein programme. You probably didn't realise that the Priest's family having lunch was filmed in Arillas. They live in the Heritage Trail area.

Thats a mimosa tree in full bloom. The perfume from them is amazing. I love mimosa. Thank you for that pic.

Hi Everyone
Thought I'd post a few pics taken on the cliff walk above the north end beach towards Agios Stefanos.

I think the yellow one is broom, but don't know what the others are - help please.
Best wishes
PJ

There is a lovely mimosa tree at the gate of the wee house at the vegetable growing place, up the road from Brouklis. Anyone who is lucky enough to visit in late May, early June, should see it in bloom.(stand beside it and breath in!!!!).

The top pink flower is a type of Convolvus (Bindweed) and I guess the blue daisy might be Chicory but there are other possibilities.

The white one looks like a variety of Cistus (Rock Rose) but I cannot find the other pink one is my flower books.

Here are a few close-ups of common flowers taken around Agios Georgios

What lovely pictures Dennis, would look good on the wall, I couldnt make up my mind if the blue one was a cornflower or chicory but think your right. Viv

Hi Maggi, I love the mimosa but it is even more frost tender then the olive is when young, so it certainly woundn't be any good in W yorkshire. Viv

Just thought you might like to see the "swathes" (is that a real word??) of wild flowers in the field next to our house.  Actually looks much prettier than the picture but I'm afraid it was the best I could do!

Dear Wegg

The hill reminds me of a place in Somerset which I can't give a name to but those purple flowers are still in my head. Anyone know what they are? Looks like Exmoor to me.

Contrary to popular belief, I do appreciate the finer things in life and that pic was one of them. thanks!
