Some wid flowers, herbs and trees in Crete. Διάφορα αγριολούλουδα, βότανα και δένδρα στην Κρήτη.

Wild raspberries in bloom. βατόμουρα ανθισμένα.

Origanum. Ρίγανη.
Laurel. Δάφνη.
The above is not some kind of exotic tree. Its just a plain old cypress tree strangled to death by ivy.
Το παραπάνω, δεν είναι κάποιο εξωτικό δένδρο. Ένα κυπαρίσσι είναι που τόχει πνίξει ο κισσός.

Lovely flowers and a happy bee! I love the cypress tree -- it does look different! Delightful, colorful captures as always, Costas! A bright spot in my morning!

I can always smell those herbs. I think we get the purple flowers here too. They are quite pretty.

Your posts are always so poetic just in the images, they seem to blend together as if in rhyme. The flowers are lovely and the poor ivy covered tree, is also lovely, but the one that I would like most to partake of is Raspberries, for they are my fav~

Flowers and bees go well together, you captured both beautifully. The ivy covered tree is a little sad.

See, this is what I love about you. I can be on the other side of the world, and see such amazing beauty ... all I have to do is go to your blog and enlarge your photos. Thank you.
