Above Horio

The view from the terraces above the old village looking down at the harbour.

Tuberous hawkbits growing out of old terrace walls.

Wild chicory scrapes a living from the poor soil.....

An old shepherd's hut stands guard over a long disused terrace.

Scabious like knautias cover the hillside at this time of year.

Along with stars of Bethlehem

The Holy orchid with a good view...

A prickly customer tucked away behind a wall.

And the walk home past Agia Triada, the largest church in the village.
