Flowers, flowers and more flowers

Our walk along the cliff tops on Sunday was most interesting. The flowers were beautiful and blanketed the green areas in lovely colour.

After our walk we sat on the beach and soaked up the sun and ate sandwiches and drank juice. We had a very enjoyable day.

Hi Judith,
I liked your photos and I have recommended your post on my Facebook page.
I hope you will keep adding photos from Crete's nature to your blog.

I've never visited early enough for spring flowers. They look lovely.

What a beautiful place to have a walk....the flowers are so pretty but I'm sure I wouldn't be able to quit looking at the ocean.
