Flowers & Fruits of Greece
Since this is a botanical blog..... I thought you might enjoy a break between stops on the tour and see some of the familiar and unfamiliar flowers, fruits and "wild plants" of Greece.
These grapevines were hanging in a courtyard of a restaurant.
They provided shade, yet were lush and full of fruit.
Bougainvilleas bloom everywhere, tucked into
nooks and crannies along the pathways
This bougainvillea was just climbing up the side of a building,
bursting with color at the top.
Geraniums seem to find a niche anywhere in the world.
These were growing wild along a drain.
Could this be a thistle... or an artichoke.
I opted for artichoke....growing wild along a
little used Mountain road that we took.
I LOVE wild things.....all dried out and oh so interesting....
Enjoy Your weekend - I will continue to catch up and be back on Monday with more of Greece.
